There and Here: Luca Silvestrini’s Protein Dance at Islington Centre
Our partnership with Luca and his wonderful Protein Dance has blossomed over the last two years or so and led us to ‘There and Here’, a dance production which focuses on the experiences of participants through the medium of dance, at the same time as developing the learning and expression through dance and language.
The team worked closely with our participants from the outset and took part in the daily life of the Centre in the weeks leading up to the intensive three week performance preparations and rehearsals in July 2015.
We have developed a great mutually supportive relationship with Protein. Their understanding of how to work best with those most in need is so valuable to a project like our's. The benefits are both immediate and long lasting. Participants enjoy each and every session, and discover dance as a way to express oneself, which in turn improves wellbeing and contributes to our inclusive sense of community.
