Luca Silvestrini’s Protein uses original choreography, text, music and humour to produce entertaining dance theatre that examines human relationships – searching for the potential absurdity in everyday situations.
"Excellently performed by a multi-talented, international cast, Border Tales is a big, brave, cacophonous attempt to show what it means to live in multicultural Britain today."
"I was mesmerised for every second"
"It was stunning, brilliant. I had no idea what to expect. Nearly went to the cinema...glad I didn't."
If you missed it, there's still chance to see it in Birmingham from 13-17 May.
