The show, which aims to reconnect individuals with the town and each other in a celebration of dance and community, will see Protein’s professional company take residency for two weeks, working with and performing alongside local apprentice artists and dance groups from the Tees Valley. During the five days of outdoor performances the company will immerse themselves in the day to day town activity, appearing as random, incidental occurrences. The mini-performances will grow in scale, becoming increasingly visible before culminating in a fully-formed finale performance involving over 100 dancers, including any passers-by who have learned the steps.
