"A rib-tickling dissection of the quest for the body beautiful." Metro on B for Body

From psychoanalysis (On the Couch, 2000) and booze culture (PubLife, 2002) to consumerism (Big Sale, 2005), Protein has built an international reputation for putting human behaviour under the choreographic microscope. Now, the pursuit of bodily perfection gets the forensic Protein treatment.

A witty satire on our growing fixation with body image and body care, Dear Body picks up where B for Body (winner of The Place Prize Audience Vote) left off. Combining innovative choreography, video imagery and trademark dark humour, six professional Protein dancers and an ensemble cast of amateur performers from the local community deliver a high-energy body blow to our image-obsessed age!

Suitable for 16yrs+, contains nudity.

A co-production with DanceXchange, commissioned by Swindon Dance, DanceXchange, Southbank Centre, Centre Choregraphique National Roubaix Pas to Calais, Yorkshire Dance and Hextable Dance with support from Brighton Dome and Wyvern Theatre.

"Silvestrini's work is both a funny, barbed consideration of the dangerous pursuit of beauty and a brightly polished piece of dance theatre." Donald Hutera, Time Out
