Luca Silvestrini’s Protein – Border Tales Thu 7 May, 7pm

Protein Dance are one of the Country’s most original and respected dance companies – and regular visitors to The Lowry. In 2019 we presented them twice – they brought The Little Prince to the Quays in November – and in March we presented Border Tales in The Compass Room where the strange shape of the room really suited the piece.

Border Tales is a collection of stories about migration that draws on the dancers personal experience – and we deliberately programmed it in March as a celebration of multi-cultural Britain at the point we all imagined we’d be leaving the EEC – although in practice Brexit was delayed by several months. Its still a fantastic and moving piece of dance.
