Best Regards, by Italian dancer and choreographer Marco D’Agostin, is a touching tribute to his late mentor. It’s a letter written to someone who will never answer. A dance in the shadow (or light) of Charnock – pioneering performer and co-founder of British dance company, DV8 Physical Theatre.

D’Agostin met and worked with the irrepressible Charnock in 2010. Inspired by his hyperkinetic and explosive performances, this encounter was to change the way D’Agostin thought about dance and its possibilities forever.

Best Regards is an exercise in memory. It’s an invitation to the audience to consider: what would you write to someone who will never read your words? It’s D’Agostin’s way of saying: "Dear N, I wanted to be too much too".
