Connecting people and everyday life through dance
Stockton PRU Project
Protein has just returned from a three-week project based in Stockton-on-Tees, working in partnership with ARC Stockton and Bishopton PRU.
Over the course of this intensive residency, we collaborated with the students from Bishopton PRU to create a brand new piece of dance theatre this is us, performed at ARC Stockton alongside artists from Protein. Influenced by Border Tales, created by Luca Silvestrini in 2013, this performance takes an ironic yet moving look at identity and the way we are perceived by others.
Created by Protein in collaboration with the young people from Bishopton Secondary
Performed by Jake Elgey, Karwan Mahmoud, Alicia Leng, Cory Sharp, Oscar Whitaker
And with Tom Goodwin, Daniel Martin, Rachele Rapisardi
Protein and ARC Stockton would like to give enormous thanks to all the participants who have been part of the creative process, including Mark Sharp. We'd also like to thank the parents for their continual support and the enthusiastic staff from Bishopton Secondary, especially Gemma Palmer and Stephanie Mather.
this is us is the tenth young people’s project Protein has run nationwide as part of its Real Life, Real Dance programme. The project was supported by Trusthouse Charitable Trust, ARC Stockton Arts Centre and Greenwich Dance.

The 2016 tour of May Contain Food visited 20 venues and performed 52 shows, receiving rave reviews and wonderful feedback from audiences:
"...lip-smacking fusion of song, dance, mime and sweet aperitif tomatoes"
- Judith Mackrell
"A yummy night!"
- Neil Norman
"May Contain Food is a delightful selection of amuse-bouches."
- Graham Watts
Feedback from audiences:
"Entertaining, funny, accessible, visually stunning. Equally gruelling, disturbing and very honest"
"Loved it! I felt so conscious of everything! Food will never be looked, smelled, touched or eaten in the same sense again!"
"An amazing experience. Very impressed by the vocal quality of the company - and all a cappella!!"
"Really excellent exploration of our rather modern obsession with food - brilliant dancing and singing. Enjoyed every minute"
We are delighted to have received a nomination for Best Independent Company for the 17th National Dance Awards!
We would like to thank the very talented artists, collaborators and contributors with whom we have the great privilege of working with.
