Out of the Blue, trailer


Performance trailer for 'Out of the Blue', choreography by Anouk van Dijk.


'Out of the Blue' departs from creation myths present in cultures throughout history until present day, as a group emerge from an abstracted blue world. They collect, invent and parade artefacts from lost, threatened or imagined worlds in ever-changing processions, uniting, colliding and joining forces again. Ancient rituals turn into commerce, pagan beliefs merge with seasonal feasts, humans transform into cyborg plants.

'Out of the Blue' celebrates the power of the imagination, and the resilience to adapt to unstable conditions as we prepare for a future yet unknown.
