First stage production of Dayglo, Autumn 2011. Photographs by Robert Workman.
'Dayglo' has been developed in partnership with The Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and the University of Ulster. The production will explore the social, moral, scientific and political questions raised by advances in pharmacogenetics, defined as the study of how genetic variation affects our response to medicines

Y Touring's creative process involves the input of experts from our project expert group. On May 18th 2011, members of the 'Dayglo' expert group, along with young people Hackney Free & Parochial Secondary School (London Borough of Hackney) and Alexandra Park School (London Borough of Haringey), other stakeholders and playwright Abi Bown, participated in an interactive debate exploring the issues posed by personalising medical treatments according to our genes. Several Advisory Group members gave presentations, expressing their point of view.
