TO BE STRAIGHT WITH YOU

Press Release


“Visionary and artistically magnificent…highly political dance theatre: angry, powerful and emotional”
NEUES DEUTSCHLAND, BERLIN
WORLD PREMIERE, DECEMBER 2007

DV8's Artistic Director Lloyd Newson leads a multi-ethnic cast in a poetic but unflinching exploration of tolerance, intolerance, religion and sexuality.

DV8's new production is based on hundreds of hours of audio interviews collected throughout the UK with people directly affected by these issues. Incorporating dance, text, documentary, animation and film, twenty years on DV8 still refuses to be defined.

Winner: Grand Prix de Danse, Syndicat Professionnel de la Critique de Théâtre, Musique et Danse (Paris 2009)
