Bloodlines at Royal Central School of Speech & Drama

Bloodlines will be presented on Jan. 7th at 6:00pm at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, followed by a post-show discussion.

Bloodlines is a performance based on the creators own experiences of being treated for a life-threatening disease. Through sound, digital media and dance, the performance traces the microscopic drama that plays out between Leukaemia and medical treatment in the human body.  It draws on composer Milton Mermikides’ experience of Leukaemia and his treatment through a bone marrow transplant donated by his sister, Alex Mermikides (director), exploring both the subjective experience and science of the disease.


Bloodlines emerges as the practice as research strand of the Chimera Network, exploring collaborative and compositional strategies of science-engaged performance. It has been performed at the Science Museum London and the Rose Theatre Kingston. More information at Bloodlines.

Following the performance there will be a post-show discussion with the creators, composer Milton Mermikides and director Alex Mermikides.
