Protein are an unusual dance company: they take everyday issues and subject them to a deep, witty analysis through idiosyncratic and distinctive dance theatre.

LOL combines video animation with performers who sing, dance and talk all at the same time. A unique approach to the era of social networking and real time relationships, LOL is about love, wanting and connectedness in the internet age.

With a distinctive blend of original choreography, text, humour and music to produce socially relevant and entertaining high quality dance theatre, Protein’s ingredients conjure a razor-sharp commentary on our Facebook society, and an affecting rendering of human need. Luca Silvestrini’s award winning Protein has struck dance gold with this timely, critically acclaimed production.

Protein’s tour was presented by the British Council in partnership with GREAT and NCPA.

“Savvy, highly-entertaining dance theatre… it has a potent, even poignant charm” – The Times
