Description

BORDER TALES: PROTEIN DANCE

The smash-hit, Border Tales, Protein's punchy yet poignant commentary on multicultural Britain, seen through the eyes of an international cast, is told through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. With this broadcast, we contribute to breaking down

the walls of silence that uphold and sustain ‘borders’ around the world.

“Funny, thought-provoking and consistently entertaining, Border Tales celebrates our differences, acknowledges our sameness and does more to repair the rifts than politics ever could.”

The Scotsman

“A well-thought-out, beautifully performed and poignant piece of theatre which will always be relevant.”

Protein’s May Contain Food and The Little Prince have been adapted for smaller venues and have toured extensively to rural venues with the Rural Touring Dance Initiative. In order to support artists in these difficult times, Protein will be passing the broadcast fee directly to the dancers in the show.

THE HEAD WRAP DIARIES - UCHENNA DANCE

Hair – worn long, worn short, worn wavy or in braids – is the subject of The Head Wrap Diaries, a funny and uplifting dance theatre show by

Uchenna Dance.

The show is set in a hair salon and is about people and their ongoing relationship with hair.Blending club styles House, Waacking, and Vogue with African and Contemporary Dance, with a good dose of humour and a sizzling soundtrack of sounds, The Head Wrap Diaries explores femininity, beauty, culture, sisterhood and most importantly; HAIR!

Meet stylists Linda and Riyah who will take you on a hair journey that will have you laughing out loud, thinking about your own (and everyone else’s!) hair while you learn a thing or two about afro hair, straight from the hairdresser’s chair.

“If you came prepared for a lecture, prepare to be disappointed. If you came fora party, prepare to get one”

ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM: LANRE MALAOLU 

Something’s wrong. Can’t get out of bed, can’t concentrate, can’t shake the mounting tension. Something unspoken is building up,

leaking out, taking over...

Fusing physical theatre, hip hop dance and spoken word, Elephant in The Room is an explosive solo that explores the mental health crisis and the phenomenon of toxic masculinity. The show takes a sharp sideways look at the insidious stigma around mental health issues, asking how race, class and culture can affect the way we

choose to address them. And what happens when we don’t...

"The ‘elephant’ is never named, but it is shown – beautifully." The Stage
