Protein uses original choreography, text, music and humour to produce thought-provoking and entertaining dance theatre that examines human relationships – searching for the potential absurdity in everyday situations.
(In)visible Dancing - thank you!
The short documentary above was made by Henry Bird of Cover The Cake Productions and gives a great flavour of the tour. Big thanks to Henry!
“I love stuff like that; flash mobs, dancing, all the rest of it. The thing about it was, I had no idea it was even happening. Then, suddenly, there it was!” - Passerby in Canterbury
(In)visible Dancing has taken over the city centres of Bath, Cardiff and Canterbury over the last six weeks, and what an amazing tour it's been. Through rain and shine, over 20,000 people in these three lovely places have welcomed, watched and engaged with this show that is all about bringing dance into people's lives.
We couldn't have done this without the help of our wonderful local partners, so we'd like to say a huge thanks to BathDance, ICIA Bath and the University of Bath; Coreo Cymru, Chapter, and the Arts Council of Wales; South East Dance and the Gulbenkian at the University of Kent. Your support has been invaluable.
Thanks also to all the local dancers, companies and people of each town who joined in to make each Finale the wonderful spectacle it was.
Here's a video to give you an idea of what the Finale was like in Bath:
