Infusion Physical Theatre

Dance theatre, multi media and brain chemistry. Fun, emotive, off-balance show for the whole family

  • 24th March 2024 - 24th March 2024

Dive into the pre-frontal cortex for an off-balance, fun, emotive dance exploration of the three modes of emotional regulation: threat, drive, soothe. Award winning Infusion Physical Theatre looks at adrenaline, dopamine, and oxytocin in a multimedia dance show for all ages.

This 4-cast ensemble brings to life the movement of mental well-being in a thoughtful and rambunctious examination of hormones that push, pull and drag us through life. Combining contemporary dance and multimedia, Infusion weaves together non-traditional partnering and original music to follow the cravings of a post-lockdown society eager for recovery.

Special guests Professor Nicola Clayton FRS and Mark Baldwin OBE introduce the events.

Then unpack the science with post-show talk by world leading researchers Professors Ljiljana Fruk (Bionano Engineering) and David Belin (Psychology) as they discuss their work on these hormones and answer questions from the audience.
