OUTREACH

Whether it's developing ideas for events, workshops or long term projects LYNNEBEC's approach is lead by creativity and collaboration.

LYNNEBEC work to share knowledge and insight with academic staff on how best to reframe their research to reach a wider audience and create innovative science and arts collaborations.

Our partners have included The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, The Lapworth Museum of Geology, IMSR (Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research), and the University of Birmingham Public Engagement, Oxford Brookes University. 

Jon Clatworthy, Director of The Lapworth Museum of Geology

"LYNNEBEC’s approach to the project was fantastic, and the entire Lapworth Museum team found them an absolute pleasure to work with. Jess and Cat of LYNNEBEC were very careful to gauge the requirements and expectations of the Lapworth for the project [they]... communicated very effectively with the Lapworth Team, from planning right through to delivery and evaluation.

DANCE & THEATRE 

Fun and energetic, our workshops tap into LYNNEBEC's unique theatrical movement style. Focusing on ensemble work, improvisation, acrobatic ways of supporting and using weight in duets and groups, you will be encouraged to use your creativity and find your own movement style.

COMMISSIONS IN EDUCATION

 

"LYNNEBEC were a joy to work with, full of creative ideas and amazing dance concepts taking the core science and adapting this for a lay audience. Audience feedback was exceptional with all of the people we surveyed wanting to see more."

Dr Angela Taylor - Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research 

ABOUT

AlgoRHYTHM! Pilot is an educational, interactive performance, using dance and theatre to bring to life analytical chemistry & steroid mass spectrometry for older children & their families.

 

Framed within they style of an 80's style wrestling match, the audience enters the ring as a heavyweight competitor vs... the Algorithm. Audiences watched 3 almost identical dance routines 'test samples' and had to diagnose the patient correctly to beat the Algorithm.  


The performers were made up of the female scientists who work in this area of scientific diagnosis. They had little to no dance experience before the performance. LYNNEBEC worked with them over a period of 8 weeks to develop the performance, boost their confidence and familiarity with dance. 

AlgoRHYTHM! was commissioned by the Institute for Systems & Metabolism Research (IMSR) to form part of the annual BBC airing of the RSI Christmas Science Lecture series. It was performed in the Bramall Building (UoB) and Thinktank Science Museum, December 2019. The show reached over 200 people respectively and was well received by audiences. It tackled outdated gender stereotypes in science and little known research of steroids, mass spectrometry and cancer diagnosis.
