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.
Autin Dance Theatre’s outdoor show is a tale told in two parts – an interactive promenade and a physical theatre duet – which transports its audiences into another world, to tell a story about
our own world.
Through dance, movement and masterful puppeteering, Out of the Deep Blue dives into the themes of the climate emergency and the biodiversity crisis in an outdoor 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.
