Out of the Deep Blue

Out of the Deep Blue

Mon 1 Jan 0001 - Wed 15 Jun 2022, 9.30am, 11.30am & 2pm

The whirr of the wind cutting across a rocky beach, the whoosh of the waves lapping the shore... 

The illusion of calm is broken when EKO, a sentient Sea Giant, pads onto dry land. There he encounters a young girl called Violet. And that’s where the story begins. 

Presented by Autin Dance Theatre, Out of the Deep Blue is a tale told in two parts - an interactive promenade and a physical theatre duet – transporting its audiences into another world, to tell a story about our own world. 

Through dance, movement & masterful puppeteering, the performance dives into the themes of the climate emergency & the biodiversity crisis in a spectacle featuring a 4-metre tall puppet operated by 5 world-class puppeteers and contemporary dancers. 

The show has been designed with children and family audiences in mind, and this magical story about the power of empathy and collaboration between these two beings - an ancient creature, a dispirited teen - speaks to the world at large.   Performance time approx. 60 minutes
