ICIA and Bath Dance present the première of Border Tales by Luca Silvestrini’s Protein from Thursday 28 November to Saturday 30 November, 7.30pm, matinee 2.30pm on Sunday 1 December at La Scala studios , Bath.
The only showing in the south-west, Border Tales is a blend of dance, dialogue and live music that considers the national, religious and ethnic mix of multicultural living. Luca Silvestrini looks at where the lines are drawn between ‘them’ and ‘us’. But who is ‘them’? And who are these aliens amongst us?
Seated in the round to bring you closer to the action, a cast of international dancers supported by a group of local performers will entertain and provoke you with this look at migration, identity and how we are defined.
Protein has toured throughout the United Kingdom and internationally. Its recent production LOL (lots of love) was awarded Best Independent Company Theatre Awards UK 2011 . Driven by Luca Silvestrini’s concern for the human condition and his drive to communicate contemporary dance to a wider public, Protein has carved out new territory in which to develop, present and experience dance theatre.
