Protein uses original choreography, text, music and humour, connecting theatrical experiences with real life stories, resulting in witty, entertaining and provocative shows on- and off-stage.

May Contain Food
We are very pleased to announce Protein's new show, May Contain Food. The work will explore food and our relationship to eating, with an a cappella score composed by Orlando Gough and performed live by the cast. We've just finished four weeks of R&D, culminating in a sharing for an invited audience at the Royal Opera House. Creation rehearsals begin in earnest at the end of August. Keep an eye here, on Twitter and Facebook to keep abreast of the ongoing development.
RAI docu on LOL
While LOL (lots of love) was going down a treat at Equilibrio Festival in Rome, RAI (Italy's national broadcaster) was making a documentary about the work, which you can watch here. It is in Italian, but Italian's a beautiful language.
Border Tales at gDA
We had a wonderful weekend of Border Tales shows at gDA, with a standing ovation on Saturday night. Thank you so much to the cast, crew and everyone at Greenwich Dance.
Luca in Japan
Over three weeks in June, Luca, along with Protein regular Valentina Golfieri, will create a new large-scale work with dozens of local people of all ages in the idyllic onsen town of Kinosaki, Japan. He has been invited by Japan Contemporary Dance Network and will be working with Japanese physical theatre company Monochrome Circus, as well as local dance artists. This will culminate in performances at Kinosaki International Arts Center 26-28 June.
This project builds on the success of previous intergenerational projects across Europe, including Valfresco in France, Cruilles in Spain, and other projects in Greece, Italy and the UK.
