Luca Silvestrini's Protein's newest dance work, En Route, will be an outdoor promenade piece around their home borough of Woolwich following the success of (In)visible Dancing 2019, performed with more than 150 local participants in Woolwich Town Centre.

En Route will move through the streets and public spaces of Woolwich in the Royal Borough of Greenwich from the week of 26 July using a mixture of dance, live music and storytelling, joined by local participants to be found along the way.

In the lead up to the première, Open Fridays will connect dancers and local people with online and outdoor dance classes and interactive strolls in Woolwich.

Silvestrini said, "En Route is not just a new piece of work, it’s a memorable return to feeling and being together. We have chosen walking as a way to rebuild and refresh our relationships with people and the outdoors. We look forward to journeying with the public, starting this summer in Woolwich and in other locations from next year."
