Protein Dance: LOL (Lots of Love)
Nominated for a Theatre Awards UK award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance.
Known for creating witty and profound dance-theatre from everyday life, Luca Silvestrini’s award-winning Protein has struck dance gold with LOL (lots of love). In an age of electronic communication this timely, critically acclaimed production puts its six dancers on a quest for romance.
Against a video wall of dozens of screen-gazing individuals, Protein’s cyber souls nail the language of life online. Talking and dancing at speed, they tackle the baffling etiquette of electronic discourse, make hilarious confessions, and dance the physical equivalent of poking and tweeting. These ingredients conjure up a razor-sharp commentary on our Facebook society.
“Savvy, highly entertaining dance theatre ... it has a potent, even poignant charm” **** The Times“
