Star Cells Virtual Tour Launched at St. Pancras for Global Motor Neurone Disease Awareness
Star Cells have launched a new self-guided virtual tour at St. Pancras International to raise awareness for Global Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Day.
The launch event took place under our iconic roof, amongst world-famous artworks such as Paul Day’s ‘The Meeting Place’ statue, and Tracey Emin’s ‘I want my time with you’. Professional contemporary and urban dancers from London based Combination Dance Company and guest dancers from Rambert School performed a preview of the new virtual promenade, which celebrates resilience, community spirit, and hope for the future.
The virtual self-guided walk takes viewers through 6 stunning locations in and around St. Pancras International, Kings Cross Station and The Francis Crick Institute.
Viewers can navigate the experience via an interactive map, accessible via smartphone. The experience includes immersive and 360 camera features, celebrating the local architecture and landscape, whilst raising awareness of the world class science and culture on our doorstep.
The performance tour will remain in situ throughout the summer for visitors to enjoy. Inspired by the exciting and ground-breaking research into neuroscience taking place at The Francis Crick Institute London and at Manchester Metropolitan University; 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.
