The medium of interpretive dance to convey basic science is well regarded but not commonplace for college-level instruction or scientific hypothesis development. The molecular biology of cancer involves multiple polymer languages that coordinate genome information flow from DNA to RNA to proteins. The author’s course (1) uses a nonbinary art-science approach to teach the molecular biology of cancer; (2) communicates cellular processes to cancer patients in order to empower them to understand what they are experiencing; and (3) assists cancer scientists in developing hypotheses through kinesthetic and visual enactment of cellular processes. Nontrained movers and scientific thinkers together participate in choreostorming, a nonbinary process for developing, and extending, thought experiments into the movement laboratory.
