Cover:
IMPACT Danscience is an interpretation of the emerging science of epigenetics. The intricate movesof the young dancers draw upon both classical Indian dance and the dynamics of cells, nuclei andchromosomes. It is the result of a series of workshops run by the choreographers Mayuri Boonhamand Subathra Subramaniam of ANGIKA Dance Company, and biomedical scientist Dr SheilaOchugboju. The project was funded by a Wellcome Trust Pulse award.
