En Route

Year of Production


Protein’s new outdoor promenade experience in Woolwich.

A journey of discovery through different worlds, En Route moved through the streets, green and iconic public spaces of Woolwich in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, from Friday 30 July to Sunday 1 August 2021.

For Protein’s first public performance since the start of the pandemic, this was an opportunity to share a collective space and connect as we move out of isolation. 

See, hear, feel and breathe in the neighbourhood and get a fresh perspective, with dance, specially commissioned live music and storytelling. 



"A playful and powerful journey of individuals coming together to form an empowered collective, the audience sharing every step and every minute"
The Stage
"En Route consistently brought Woolwich to life in mysterious, magical ways. "
Seeing Dance
"En Route is a dazzling investigation into the possibilities of live performance... It was a masterclass in site-specific work"
The Greenwich Visitor
"Reconnects us with place and presence"
