Poignant commentary on multicultural Britain, seen through the eyes of an international cast

Working in partnership with the Rural Touring Dance Initiative, we wanted to make sure we could continue to bring high-quality professional dance to our audiences during the coronavirus pandemic. Throughout October the Rural Touring Dance Initiative is going digital, and will be bringing you three fantastic filmed dance shows followed by an opportunity for you to speak to the artists in a series of Q&A Zoom calls. Each show will be available to watch for free for a week, and you will need to book a free place in advance to attend any of the Q&A calls

Watch online anytime from Friday 9th to Thursday 15th October

Protein is one of the most distinctive voices in British dance theatre, Artistic Director and founder Luca Silvestrini has been using a blend of original choreography, text, humour and music to entertain and provoke audiences since 1998. Take Art was delighted to welcome the company to Hatch Beauchamp with their fantastic family show, The Little Prince.

The smash-hit Border Tales is Protein’s punchy yet poignant commentary on multicultural Britain, seen through the eyes of an international cast, and told through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. 

With this broadcast, we contribute to breaking down the walls of silence that uphold and sustain ‘borders’ around the world.
