Immerse yourself within an interactive sound and video installation inspired by the transmission patterns of ‘infectious’ ideas through social networks, and the spread of real-world diseases through human populations. This award-winning team of artists, scientists and musicians combine cutting-edge technology and scientific research to create a sonic and visual world for you to explore.

Lead by artist and stage designer Becs Andrews (Phase Revival: An Optical Harmonica) in collaboration with evolutionary biologist Professor Mike Brockhurst, choreographer Simon Birch, composer Jon Hughes and the team behind Hidden Fields (Tom Mitchell, Phill Tew) with bespoke engineering from x-io technologies, TRANSMISSION promises to be a truly eye-opening experience.

Drop in at any time between 1pm and 5pm to take part – this is a dance performance ideal for children aged 10 upwards, and for adults.
