DV8 Physical Theatre has produced 18 highly acclaimed dance-theatre works and four award-winning films for television, which have garnered over 50 national and international awards. Their new production, JOHN, authentically depicts real-life stories, combining movement and spoken word to create an intense and moving theatrical experience.
Lloyd Newson, DV8’s Artistic Director and named by the UK Critics' Circle as one of the 100 most influential people in the arts over the last 100 years, interviewed more than 50 men for this production. He asked them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John.
What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an unexpected place, unknown by most.
Don’t miss this eagerly anticipated new production, broadcast live from the National Theatre.
