The Place Online: Protein - Border Tales

Luca Silvestrini’s Protein - Border Tales
Thu 7 May, from 7pm (available for 24hrs)

The Place Online brings you this smash-hit commentary on Brexit Britain through the eyes of an international cast.

"Funny, thought-provoking and consistently entertaining, Border Tales celebrates our differences, acknowledges our sameness and does more to repair the rifts than politics ever could." - ★★★★★ The Scotsman

This thought-provoking dance theatre about multicultural Britain is presented by Luca Silvestrini's award-winning company Protein, and is told through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences.

This digital performance launches the Protein 21 Remix Series, the third part of Protein’s 21st anniversary celebrations programme, and will be followed by further online broadcasts of the company’s repertoire.

Border Tales will be streamed here on Thursday 7 May from 7pm, don't miss it!
