Luca Silvestrini’s Protein – (In)visible Dancing
Based in South Gate Street in Bath’s city centre, each performance begins as a small event and increases every time it appears. growing in number of performers and choreographic complexity. Over ten days everyday moving characters emerge from what looks like random incidental behaviour on the street to a fully fledged dance crescendo finale involving over 60 local community dancers from Hula Hoopers to Tango Dancers.
With over 18 performances over 10 days, including a cast of 6 professional and 5 local dancers and 4 musicians, (In)visible Dancing was performed to over 10’000 passers-by, some who intentionally came to watch and others who didn’t even know they were in a dance work, until the invisible became visible.
“It’s been a great insight into how a professional company works and has been inspiring to work with the dancers and Luca” – Local Dancer
