Protein Dance will be performing its acclaimed outdoor show (In)visible Dancing as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017. In its 12th edition, this much-loved outdoor event has been specially commissioned for the people of Hull. Integrating performers both professional and community-based, the company rehearses and performs with locally based talent, which makes this performance truly something special. Featuring live music (including a sousaphone!) be prepared to see the streets come to life as Protein animates the city centre with dance, theatre and drama.
The two-week dance residency will culminate in a spectacular Grand Finale performance on Saturday 1 July. Be sure to join us in Jameson Street, Hull city centre, from 3pm. This joyous and unique celebration of Hull promises to be an experience to remember.
