This evening, Luca Silvestrini’s Protein will be streaming their hit show Border Tales as part of The Place’s weekly streaming programme.
Border Tales is a punchy yet poignant commentary on multicultural Britain, using dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. With a score by Andy Pink and additional music by Anthar Kharana, performed live on stage, Luca Silvestrini’s acclaimed comic dance theatre provokes and entertains.
First created in 2013 and still refreshingly relevant today, Border Tales has toured the world from Italy to Palestine and South Korea. Its sold out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017 was much celebrated and the show has been broadcast in full on BBC World Service as part of its Identity Live Day. Now audiences can enjoy it once more online, preceded by an introduction from Artistic Director Luca Silvestrini.
Border Tales is being streamed as part of a series of weekly events on Thursday evenings from The Place Online, which will continue for a further four weeks. All screenings are framed by a short introduction from the artist, and audiences will have the opportunity to donate to support The Place and the featured artists during this difficult time. Protein will be paying a fee to all performers in Border Tales for the streaming.
Since its first production in 1998, Protein has cemented its reputation as one of Britain’s most distinctive dance companies, blending bold and clever choreography with a great sense of humour while connecting theatrical experiences with timely and relevant issues.
When: 7th May 2020, from 7pm
Where: Streaming online with The Place Online
£: Free but donations welcomed to support the artists (Suitable for ages 12+)
