Protein connects people and everyday life through dance
The Little Prince
Brand new show from Luca Silvestrini's Protein
Welcome to the incredible story of the Little Prince, retold in this live show by a pilot stranded in the desert.
Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince is brought to life using Protein’s award winning mix of dance, humour and spoken word. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra and lighting by Jackie Shemesh, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.
⭐⭐⭐⭐"St-Exupéry’s enigmatic tale [...] delivered with quirky charm. Prendergast is touchingly excellent in the title role" The Observer

(In)visible Dancing 2019
Protein will for the first time bring their community-invigorating show to London as they take over the streets of Woolwich, South-East London, with (In)visible Dancing.
Surprising and seemingly impromptu bursts of dance will pop-up on high streets, corners and squares over two weeks, culminating in a flash-mob style finale of over 200 performers, six live musicians and all passers-by who have learned the steps.
25 July - 4 August 2019
Finale Performance: Sunday 4 August, 3-4pm
★★★★★ ‘Funny, thought-provoking and consistently entertaining, Border Tales celebrates our differences, acknowledges our sameness and does more to repair the rifts than politics ever could.’ THE SCOTSMAN
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 traditional venues and festivals, but in village halls, care homes and your local high street !
