For Protein, creating and performing dance is crucially connected with everyday life. Artistic Director Luca Silvestrini takes everyday issues and subjects them to a deep, witty analysis through his own idiosyncratic and distinctive dance theatre. Driving the approach is a desire to connect theatrical experience with the life stories of participants – amateur or professional – and audiences. The result is work of humour, pathos and invention that reflects the integrity and absurdity of its ingredients.
“Bouncy, extremely clever and constantly entertaining”
“Luca Silvestrini is the sharpest of comic choreographers”
