Purbeck Art Weeks: Out of the Deep Blue Autin Dance Theatre Spectacular
Outdoor physical theatre spectacular
‘Out of the Deep Blue’ is an outdoor physical theatre spectacular featuring a giant puppet, five puppeteers and a female dancer. Set in the not too distant future it tells the magical story of Eko, a sea giant, who rises from the deep ocean and encounters, on the shore, a courageous little girl called Violet.
These two beings – an ancient creature, a young girl – offer us their stories: an impactful dialogue around our earth’s climate emergency, told through dance, movement and masterful puppeteering. Ideal for children and families, but a story about the power of understanding that speaks to the world at large, that all will enjoy.In the lead up to these performances, the Autin Dance Theatre have been doing creative puppetry and dance workshops with young people in a number of local schools.
The puppets have been created out of recycled household waste. You can see what they’ve produced at Rollington Barn and in the Mowlem Theatre. PAW is delighted to be working with the Mowlem Theatre on this event, and would like to thank Swanage Town Council and the Dorset Council Culture and Community Fund for their support.
