(In)visible Dancing, an emergent, participatory performance combining the idea of a 'flashmob' with a show that is performed and developed over a period of one or two weeks, has been presented to major festival in the UK, Ireland, Italy and been seen by over 130,000 people since 2010
Protein took over the streets of Woolwich, South-East London, between 25 July & 4 August 2019 with their community-invigorating show, #InvisibleDancing.
Surprising and seemingly impromptu bursts of dance popped-up on high streets, corners and squares over two weeks in front of over 18,000 people, culminating in a flash-mob style finale with over 150 performers, six live musicians and all passers-by who had learned the steps.
