+ post-show Q&A on Fri 16 Mar with producer/director Alan Lyddiard.
Known for mining witty and profound dance theatre from everyday life, Luca Silvestrini’s LOL (lots of love) has been nominated in the Theatre Awards UK Outstanding Achievement in Dance category and for Best Modern Choreography at the 2011 National Dance Awards. Against a video wall of screen-gazing individuals, Protein’s cyber soulmates stylishly nail the language of life online.
Talking and dancing at breakneck speed, they tackle the baffling etiquette of electronic discourse, make hilarious confessions to the audience and dance the physical equivalent of poking and tweeting. With video animation by Rachel Davies and original music by Andy Pink, these ingredients conjure up a razor-sharp commentary on our Facebook society and human needs.
Commissioned by DanceEast, Greenwich Dance and The Place and supported by South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell.
