This limited-run dance-science installation and performance showcases the human microbiome as a site for exploration of community, diversity, equilibrium and health. 

Explore and interact with performers as they dance with yogurt, sing a love song about bacteria, dig in the dirt and reveal the inner workings of the millions of microscopic friends who call the human body home.

Presented by Anne Burnidge Dance and the UB Genome, Environment and Microbiome Community of Excellence. Visit for additional details.

Cost: Included with Museum admission
