I want to explore epigenetic’s – the shared experience/trauma from our ancestors represented through our DNA.
Can we change our Epigenetic DNA? Science thinks we can. But how? Also how do geographic shifts affect these developments in our DNA over time?

I have teamed up with an epigenetic scientist, and a dancer. Looking at this idea from a big/little picture perspective we will explore our own personal family linage as well as social/collective stories that shape us. Expressed through a mash up of science, dance, physical theatre, poetry, intimate anecdote and clowning set in a DNA Helix.

This project will be performed at La Mama Theatre, Melbourne in December 2017.
