Director Biography - Luca Silvestrini, Roswitha Chesher, Andy Pink

Luca Silvestrini is Protein’s Artistic Director. He is known for his unique style of dance theatre combining choreography, text, humour and social commentary to present the everyday in revealing and subversive ways, on- and off-stage. Protein’s work, such as Dear Body, LOL (lots of love) and Border Tales has toured the world, from the USA to Russia, Columbia to Thailand.

Roswitha Chesher originally trained as a dancer and choreographer at Trinity Laban and enjoys bringing that knowledge to her work as filmmaker and photographer. She has created 'dance for camera' films, video installations and video installations for live work.

Andy Pink received his BMus from The University of London. Andy's career began at the Royal Court Theatre in 80’s London, working with directors Max-Stafford Clarke and Danny Boyle. Border Tales (2013) was Andy's last major collaboration with Luca Silvestrini's Protein, after having previously written the music for LOL (lots of love) in 2010. Andy recently won The Cape Farewell Foundation competition for the public art installation at the Tidal Lagoon project in Swansea Bay. The time based sculpture will feed off the clean energy generated from the tidal lagoon to create a living mist sculpture and sound installation.

Director Statement

‘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.’
