A dance comedy all about social networking and the internet is coming to a Tees Valley stage.

A six-strong cast of actors will perform L.O.L (Lots of love) at the Arc in Stockton on Wednesday, March 2, from 7.30pm.

Protein Dance will perform the piece of theatre which delves into the world of electronic communication to uncover the evolutionary shift that social networking and the internet have had upon the way we live, love and connect with each other

The evening’s entertainment features video animation by Rachel Davies, lighting by Jackie Shemesh and music by Andy Pink.

Show organisers say L.O.L mixes “social comment, provocative humour and engaging performances” by the cast of Patsy Browne-Hope, Omar Gordon, Kip Johnson, Sally Marie, Fernanda Prata, and Stuart Waters.

Tickets are priced at £10 or £8 with concessions and £5 for students.

Dance continues at the Arc on Thursday, May 19 when the Candoco Dance Company presents three varied new works under the title of Renditions.

The Candoco Dance Company is the contemporary dance company of disabled and non disabled dancers. It has won numerous awards over the last 16 years including the Critics’ Circle De Valois Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance in 2007.

Renditions is a combination of humour, theatre, music and pure dance, say the show organisers.

Tickets for this show cost £10 or £8 with concessions and £5 for students.

They are available from the box office on (01642) 525199.
