Luca Silvestrini’s Protein – Border Tales
Premiered in Bath (2014), Border Tales looks at multi-cultural living in the UK seen through the eyes pf the characters on stage. Luca Silveatrini turns his sharply satirical gaze to stereotypical thinking, tolerance and where the lines are drawn between ‘them’ and ‘us’.
Seated in the round in a community dance space in the middle of Oldfield Park in Bath, up to 200 people came to see the work over four performances.
“It was stunning! I loved it – in the round, a first for me for dance, amazing! The best performance ever!” – Audience Member
