Lunar Landing

ABOUT

 

LYNNEBEC present Lunar Landing, an interactive, outdoor dance workshop for young people and families that turns science into a powerfully positive, dance adventure. Set to a space disco soundtrack, charismatic Dancetronauts Comet and Jupiter get audiences up and grooving to a dance routine inspired NASA’s next mission to the Moon. 

Lunar Landing is part of our AlgoRHYTHM series developed during lockdown and delves into a wide range of subjects including geology, astrophysics, micropaleontology, biochemistry and diabetes in a fun and energetic way.

AlgoRHYTHM aims to demystify science and make it fun and accessible to everyone, by using dance and movement to demonstrate big scientific concepts and ideas. Originally commissioned by the Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research at the University of Birmingham, it has connected with audiences all over the UK including the Lapworth Geology Museum and the Natural History Museum London.

Creative Access R&D

In November 2021, LYNNEBEC worked with two incredible Access Consultants (Ben Wilson & Caroline Parker) to creatively integrate iconic sign and audio description to make Lunar Landing more accessible for children and young people who identify as D/deaf/hard of hearing and/or blind/visually impaired. The video below is the first sharing of this.
