Protein presents BORDER TALES (trailer)
Tue 25 Feb to Sat 15 Mar 2014
The Place, London
With an engaging blend of dance, dialogue and live music, award-winning Protein returns with a new slice of timely social comment.
Based on personal accounts and collected stories, treated with Protein's trademark physical and verbal wit, Border Tales considers the national, religious and ethnic mix of multicultural living. Luca Silvestrini turns his sharply satirical gaze to perception, tolerance and where lines are drawn between 'them' and 'us'. But who is 'us' and who is 'them'? And who are these 'aliens' amongst us?

Tue 19 Nov, 8pm www.theplace.org.uk/currencycol
Currency 2013 - Join us for four nights of performance, conversation and supper.
This festival of fresh-thinking isn't straightforward dance, circus or theatre but performance that blurs the borders of all three. On each of the four evenings you can find shows that defy convention, watch studio collaborations that are deliberately wrong-footing and you can discuss it all with your fellow spectators over supper in the cafe.
Tickets are £17 (£14 concession) and include:
a light supper in The Place Cafe from 6 - 7.45pm
a half-hour pre-show sharing (choose time slot 6.30pm, 7pm or 7.30pm when booking)
main house show at 8pm
