New Outdoor Experience this Summer
Protein is thrilled to announce a new promenade experience for this summer, our first in-person performance since the start of the pandemic.
En Route will move through the streets and iconic public spaces of Woolwich in the Royal Borough of Greenwich from the week of 26th July. Using a mix of dance, specially commissioned live music and storytelling, Protein’s dancers and musicians will be joined by a pool of local participants to be found along the way, as custodians of local history and present life.
The participating audience will come across, discover, and be surprised by elements of performance set against and interacting with the surroundings and the landscapes of the route. Weaving its way through key public spaces throughout Woolwich, the promenade will connect audience and performers, bringing them together to rebuild their role in the world after the extensive period of isolation.
We are returning to connect people and places in our home borough following the success of (In)visible Dancing in 2019 performed with over 150 local participants in Woolwich Town Centre.
In the lead up to the premiere of En Route, we have launched Open Fridays, devoting one day a week to engage dancers and local people with free online and outdoor dance classes and interactive strolls in Woolwich.

“En Route is not just a new piece of work, it’s a memorable return to feeling and being together. We have chosen walking as a way to rebuild and refresh our relationships with people and the outdoors. We look forward to journeying with the public, starting this summer in Woolwich and in other locations from next year.”
