Year of Production


Ride, commissioned by The Wapping Project for their exhibition Turning the Season looked at the English season and by extension, the English class system.

Luca was asked to make a duet that responded to the “sporting physicality of the season”, and devised a dance piece that centred on the relationship between an Ascot lady and the subject of her fantasies, a jockey.

Ride, played as if coming out of nothing and disappearing into nothing, was atmospheric and fun; Jules Wright described the work as “…extremely provocative and sexually, sensually in your face. […] A commentary on class and aspiration.”

Ride is Protein’s third Wapping Project commission.
