Stockton PRU project
Protein has just returned from a three-week project based in Stockton-on-Tees, working in partnership with ARC Stockton and Bishopton PRU.
Over the course of this intensive residency, we collaborated with the students from Bishopton PRU to create a brand new piece of dance theatre this is us, performed at ARC Stockton alongside artists from Protein. Influenced by Border Tales, created by Luca Silvestrini in 2013, this performance takes an ironic yet moving look at identity and the way we are perceived by others.
this is us is the ninth young people’s project Protein has run nationwide as part of its Real Life, Real Dance programme.
A Matter of Impression
The recent commission for Sardoville Dance A Matter of Impression comes to London's Chisenhale Dance Space on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 June. With Luca’s trademark comedic style this new work is a combination of exceptional physical theatre and a humorous spin on life and people.
Acclaimed show Border Tales returns to the UK this summer, starting at Edinburgh Fringe Festival! A blend of dance, dialogue and live music, this is a witty and poignant commentary on stereotypical thinking in post-Brexit Britain.
“Superbly staged and performed” The Telegraph
