Out of the Deep Blue

By Autin Dance Theatre

The bookable performances are inside the auditorium at

1pm & 3:30pm.

Ideal for children and family audiences.

Waves wash Eko, a sentient Sea Giant, onto the shore. There he encounters little 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.

It is a story about the power of friendships and empathy that speaks to the world at large.

Please note that at 12noon – 12.30pm and 2.30pm – 3pm there will be an Outdoor promenade beginning at the Bridge near the Uni of Lincoln Student Union.
