Protein connects people and everyday life through dance
Our final and sold out date of our six-month, twenty-seven venue tour of The Little Prince in Ely had to be cancelled but will be rescheduled in the autumn.
As this brings our tour to a close, we want to show our appreciation to every single child, grown-up, venue and partner who have joined us on this magical journey. A massive thank you goes to our cast and crew.
Our Protein 21 Reimagine project, which has groups of all ages creating new dance works in response to Protein's repertoire, has been suspended until further notice.
We will continue to reach out over the next few months and do everything we can to support the artists and communities we proudly work with. Our thoughts and best wishes go to all those affected by the pandemic and we will do all we can to support the dance sector at this time.
Launching Protein 21!
We are pleased to announce the launch of Protein 21 to mark our 21st birthday. A three-part thematic programme: Remix, Reflect and Reimagine.
The Little Prince
Brand new show from Luca Silvestrini's Protein
Welcome to the incredible story of the Little Prince, retold in this live show by a pilot stranded in the desert.
Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince is brought to life using Protein’s award winning mix of dance, humour and spoken word. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra and lighting by Jackie Shemesh, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.

Protein - who we are
Seeing the world differently through dance
Luca Silvestrini's 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 !
(In)visible Dancing in Greenwich 2019
Check out our (In)visible Dancing in Greenwich film below!
For two weeks in summer 2019, surprising and seemingly impromptu bursts of dance popped-up in the Royal Borough of Greenwich in front of over 19,000 people, culminating in a flash-mob style finale with over 150 performers and six live musicians.
