Born in Italy, Luca Silvestrini graduated in Performing Arts at Bologna University before moving to the UK to complete his training at Laban. His choreography dates from 1997 when he co-founded Protein, which won Best Independent Dance Company at the National Dance Critics' Award 2011. Luca's accessible, inclusive approach to dance has led to Protein’s work being in international demand in both professional and community settings.
Formed in 1997 and currently one of the most distinctive voices in British dance theatre,
National Dance Award-winning Protein uses a blend of original choreography, humour and music to entertain and provoke audiences. Artistic Director Luca Silvestrini's desire to connect theatrical experience with real life stories results in witty shows, both on- and off-stage, that reflect the absurdity in everyday situations and experiences.
