Out of the Deep Blue – 2021 Tour Dates

Out of the Deep Blue – 2021 Tour Dates

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 new outdoor show is a tale told in two parts – an interactive promenade and a physical theatre duet. It’s a tale that transports its audiences into another world, to tell a story about our own. Through dance, movement and masterful puppeteering, Out of the Deep Blue dives into the themes of the climate emergency and the biodiversity crisis. It’s an outdoor spectacle featuring a 4-metre tall Puppet operated by 5 world-class puppeteers and contemporary dancers. Ideal for children and family audiences.
