Protein Dance's The Sun Inside, a new 11-minute film created by Luca Silvestrini, Roswitha Chesher and Andy Pink, will be available as part of ZOO’s 2020 digital Edinburgh programme.

The film features video clips by 152 contributors from around the world, each interacting with light and shade through movement, and invites viewers to take a glimpse at the sun inside their homes. The piece is part of the company’s 21st anniversary celebrations.

Silvestrini said, “while adapting to a new life, we have been searching for and following the sun inside our homes; through windows and doors, in our gardens, front door steps and balconies, rays of sunlight have been framing spots of comfort and reflection, creating shadows and other intricate designs.”

ZOO would this year have been celebrating its 20th anniversary at the Fringe. Its new online streaming service ZOOTV brings together festival favourites from the past two decades. As well as presenting The Sun Inside, Protein will also be streaming LOL (Lots of Love), which was first performed at ZOO as part of British Council Showcase in August 2011.
