‘When Ideas Come Alive’

- an exploration of scientific enquiry

This newly choreographed dance is inspired by the journey of Charles Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection from idea to publication. The dance explores scientific enquiry through unison, syncopated movement, trios, canon and contact improvisation.

Performed by The Derby High School Dance Company
