Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

"lip-smacking fusion of song, dance, mime and sweet aperitif tomatoes" (Judith Mackrell - The Guardian) 

"A yummy night." (Neil Norman - The Stage)

"outstanding, superbly performed" (Graham Watts - DanceTabs) 

Award-winning Protein returns with its most playful show to date as four vocalists and four dancers all sing for their supper in a dining setting that may contain food...

This witty piece of dance and music theatre, created by choreographer Luca Silvestrini and renowned composer Orlando Gough, is inspired by social occasions and life at mealtimes. The performers will invite you to sit at a table, offer a tasting menu and then serve you a show that explores our relationship with food.

All sound is performed a cappella as movement is composed and music is choreographed, creating an immersive experience of indulgence, nostalgia and mischief.

Duration: 90 mins no interval
