Protein connects 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 traditional venues and festivals, but in village halls, care homes and your local high street!
Coming to a village near you!
Opening Tuesday 13 February
We will pack up the van once again and make our way to sixteen UK towns and villages with our playful performance May Contain Food, May Contain You.
Turning local parish halls and community centres into a restaurant with a twist, you are invited to bring your own food (something you have grown, made or bought) and sit and decorated tables while your charming hosts, Sonya and Matt, serve you a playful mix of dance, song and humour.

Exciting news for the summer!
(In)visible Dancing returns and we need local dancers to join our company!
We will bring our much loved and celebrated outdoor show (In)visible Dancing to the centre of Stockton, as part of the Stockton International Riverside Festival.
We need six dancers to join us for this unique street performance. This is a great professional opportunity for all those wishing to gain creative experience and perform alongside Protein’s dancers.
The residency will take place in Stockton-upon-Tees from Tuesday 24 July – Sunday 5 August.
