Live: En Route

Year of Production


Protein’s promenade experience in Woolwich.

First performed in 2021 as Protein’s first public performance since the start of the pandemic, En Route was a opportunity to share collective space and connect as the world moved out of isolation. In 2022 the production returned as En Route to Common Ground, part of Greenwich and Docklands International Festival and introduced an ensemble of local community performers alongside Protein’s cast and guests.

En Route explores our connection to walking, from pilgrimage to protest and our way of connecting with nature and the environment.
