TO BE STRAIGHT WITH YOU
by DV8 Physical Theatre (2007-09)
DV8's Artistic Director Lloyd Newson leads a multi-ethnic cast in a poetic but unflinching exploration of tolerance, intolerance, religion and sexuality.
To Be Straight With You is based on hundreds of hours of audio interviews collected throughout the UK with people directly affected by these issues. Incorporating dance, text, documentary, animation and film, twenty years on DV8 still refuses to be defined.

“Visionary and artistically magnificent [...] highly political dance theatre: angry, powerful and emotional”
