(In)visible Dancing Stockton
Part of Stockton International Riverside Festival
What a blast we had! With over 200 local participants performing to an audience of over 15,000, (In)visible Dancing Stockton has been Protein's biggest yet. Thank you to all those who watched or took part in making this a truly special and memorable show.
Coming this Christmas
The Little Prince
Join the Little Prince in this live show as he journeys through the baffling world of grown-ups. Along the way he encounters 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 encourages us to look at the world through one’s heart and reconnect with the child that’s in us all.
Suitable for children young and old
Co-Commissioned by The Place and Dance East. Supported by The Point Eastleigh, Warwick Arts Centre and Dance City.

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!
