WELCOME TO STAR CELLS

A socially distanced, virtual promenade performance that can remain in situ throughout the pandemic, experience this self-guided walk as it takes you through 6 stunning locations in and around St Pancras International, Kings Cross Station and The Francis Crick Institute in London.

Inspired by the exciting and ground-breaking research into neuroscience taking place at The Francis Crick Institute London and at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU); STAR CELLS uses dance and film to inform and illustrate the science of how the body moves and reacts, the project conveys the impact of neuromuscular diseases in a powerful visual medium that raises awareness of these conditions.

We are proud to launch this performance in support of a fantastic charity, the MND Association.
You can donate to their Just Giving page using the link below.
