Out of the blue

Out of the Blue

Expect the unexpected in this musical journey from Bach to Björk. Skånes Dansteater joins forces with Malmö Opera Orchestra and Malmö Opera Children's Choir in Out of the Blue, a new work by acclaimed Dutch choreographer Anouk van Dijk.

Out of the Blue departs from the myth of creation, 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 is about the power of creation and the resilience to adapt to unstable surroundings as we prepare for a future yet unknown.
