…lip-smacking fusion of song, dance, mime and sweet aperitif tomatoes” The Guardian

This witty and irreverent dance and music theatre show from acclaimed dance company Protein, created by choreographer Luca Silvestrini and renowned composer Orlando Gough, is inspired by social occasions and life at mealtimes.

Four vocalists and four dancers sing for their supper in a dining setting that will, most probably, contain food…

Approximate running time: 90 minutes
