OUT OF THE BLUE
Baby Blue, Deep blue, sea Blue, electric Blue.
A look to the sky, what is born within, what´s found deep in the ocean; a halloo, a call from far away.
Out Of The Blue II is what you find when you are not looking. What comes out of nothing. What is presented unexpectedly. That thing that comes unannounced.
A presence that does not feel essence. Something lost, something stolen, something adapted.
Sky, sea, air; rain maybe. It is the dew in the first hour of dawn. Two strange bodies, two bodies that meet. In essence, in loneliness, in the distant.
OUT OF THE BLUE is a small contemporary format dance designed to be shown on the street where two performers are on stage. It is a fresh and fun work that comes from the need to enjoy the pleasure of dancing freely, of moving, disconnecting, get it out of the routine already established. Reason why this proposal is to have the public enjoying as much as we do. We want our audience to smile, to feel the rhythm of the excitement to which the piece leads.
