JOHN new work from DV8 Physical Theatre at The National Theatre

JOHN, a co-production between the National Theatre and DV8 Physical Theatre, conceived and directed by Lloyd Newson, opens in the Lyttelton Theatre on 30 October. This new verbatim dance-theatre is inspired by interviews with more than 50 men, asking them frank questions 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. JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, combining movement and spoken word.

DV8 Physical Theatre return to the National following their acclaimed productions To Be Straight With You, Can We Talk About This? and Just for Show. Since their inception in 1986, DV8 have made 18 works and won many awards including a Grand Prix de Danse, an International Emmy for Performing Arts, a Rose d’Or and three Prix Italia.

Previews from 30 October playing until 13 January 2015 with broadcast to cinemas by NT Live on 9 December.

National Theatre Live broadcast on 9 December.
