DV8 Physical Theatre
JOHN is a new verbatim dance-theatre work by Lloyd Newson, Artistic Director of DV8 Physical Theatre. Newson interviewed 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 where his life converges with others in an unexpected place, unknown by most. JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, where movement and spoken word combine to create an intense, moving and poignant theatrical experience.
This work follows on from DV8's last two productions:To Be Straight With You (Grand Prix de Danse, 2009 – Paris) and Can We Talk About This? (Helpmann Award for Best Dance, 2012 – Sydney; Production of the Year, Tanz Magazine, 2012 – Germany).
Contains adult themes, strong language and nudity. Suitable for 16+
Co-produced by National Theatre of Great Britain, Biennale de la Danse de Lyon, Théâtre de la Ville and Festival d'Automne Paris, Dansens Hus Stockholm and Dansens Hus Oslo.
