11:20  ‘Out Of The Deep Blue’ (preceded by a promenade from Eko)

Autin Dance Theatre

In a not-too-distant future, waves wash Eko, a sentient Sea Giant, onto the shore. There he encounters vulnerable Violet. These two beings-an ancient creature, and 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 family audiences, but it is a story about the power of understanding that speaks to the world at large.
