DV8 Physical Theatre

Theatre Group performing at the inaugural Glasgay! in 1993

DV8 Physical Theatre performed at the Tron on the 30th October 1993 with their new work, MSM. The piece dealt with cottaging, the desire to step outside the boundaries of society, to risk situations loaded with danger and fear.

DV8 Physical Theatre was formed in 1986 and has been led since its inception by Lloyd Newson. The company has produced 17 highly acclaimed dance pieces, which have toured internationally, and four award-winning films for television.

DV8 Physical Theatre’s work is about taking risks, aesthetically and physically, about breaking down the barriers between dance and theatre and, above all, communicating ideas and feelings clearly and unpretentiously. It is determined to be radical yet accessible, and to take its work to as wide an audience as possible.
