Protein connects people and everyday life through dance
Protein’s new show!
The Little Prince
We are excited to announce Protein’s new show for families, opening at Dance East this December!
Join Protein for this live stage show, as our Little Prince journeys through the exasperating world of grown-ups. Along the way he meets a lone pilot stranded in the desert and together they discover the power and beauty of friendship and the complexity of love.
Based on the well-loved story, The Little Prince is retold using Protein’s mix of humour, dance and music and urges us to look at the world through one’s heart, reconnecting with the child that’s in us all.
Co-Commissioned by The Place and Dance East. Supported by The Point Eastleigh, Warwick Arts Centre and Dance City.
Introducing our cast
This May we return to the studio once again to work with the fabulous cast of Protein’s new show The Little Prince.
It gives us pleasure to introduce Faith Prendergast and Jack Sergison, whilst welcoming back to the Protein family Andrew Gardiner and Donna Lennard.
Our May residency will be at The Point in Eastleigh, where we are excited to bring this world famous fairytale’s characters to life with dance, humour and music.
More to be announced soon...watch this space!

Border Tales 2018
Missed us last year? Our acclaimed show returns this spring!
Following a phenomenal run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 to sold-out audiences, Border Tales makes a return due to popular demand. This colourful commentary on multicultural Britain shown through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences, Border Tales looks at post-Brexit Britain seen through the eyes of its 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

Protein - who we are
Seeing the world differently through dance
Protein is one of the most distinctive voices in British dance theatre. With our own way of blending choreography, text, humour and music, Protein challenges what dance can be and most importantly, what it can do to others.
Protein believes in bringing people closer, inviting them to connect with what’s happening on stage and breaking the boundaries between watching and participating.
Protein is a company who is passionate about bringing dance to those who have no access to the theatre, and this is why we not only perform in traditional venues and festivals, but in village halls, care homes and your local high street!
