We connect people and everyday life through dance
Protein - who we are
Seeing the world differently through dance
Protein is one of the most distinctive voices in British dance theatre. With our own way of blending choreography, text, humour and music, Protein challenges what dance can be and most importantly, what it can do to others.
Protein believes in bringing people closer, inviting them to connect with what’s happening on stage and breaking the boundaries between watching and participating.
Protein is a company who is passionate about bringing dance to those who have no access to the theatre and this is why we not only perform in theatres and festivals, but in village halls, care homes and your local high street!
Rural Touring next year
Protein is proud to be invited back by Rural Touring Dance Initiative to present our renowned piece of dance theatre, May Contain Food, May Contain You. From February 2018, we will pack up the van once again, making our way to sixteen UK towns, turning local village halls and community centre into a restaurant…with a twist! Touring dates to announced very soon.
May Contain Food...
...May Contain You
Have you ever been swayed by the packaging of a new, organic product? Is it better to buy locally? Or maybe you should you be a vegetarian?
May Contain Food, May Contain You tours next spring. Join us for a fun and entertaining performance with friends and family as we transform your local venue into a musical dining experience! You are invited to bring a dish and sit at decorated tables whilst your charming and multi-talented hosts for the evening win your affections, with a playful mix of dance, song and humour.
We are excited to announce our new work with partners People Dancing, creating a four year programme that will engage local & diverse communities with dance. Including performances, collaborations and online resources, 'People Dancing: Together' starting in 2018 will turn 'everyday life' into ‘extraordinary dance!
Details on how you take part will be announced next year. Join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to receive regular updates from Protein.
