Out of the Deep Blue (Sunday) | Newry Arts Festival


Out of the Deep Blue | Monaghan Street (walk around) and McClelland Park, 5 Corry Square (outdoor theatre), Newry

The whirr of the wind cutting across a rocky beach, the whoosh of the waves lapping the shore… The illusion of calm is broken when Eko, a sentient Sea Giant, pads onto dry land. There he encounters a young girl called Violet. And that's where the story begins.

Autin Dance Theatre's highly acclaimed outdoor show, Out of the Deep Blue, is a tale told in 2 parts - an interactive promenade and a physical theatre duet - transporting its audiences into another world to tell a story about our own.

Through dance, movement, and masterful puppeteering, Out of the Deep Blue dives into the themes of the climate emergency and the biodiversity crisis in an outdoor spectacle featuring a 13-foot-tall Puppet operated by 5 world-class puppeteers and contemporary dancers.

The show, designed with children and family audiences in mind, explores the magical story about the power of empathy and collaboration between these two beings - an ancient creature, a dispirited teen - that speaks to the world at large.  Performances are at 12pm and 2pm on both Saturday and Sunday (25 minutes of a walkabout and 25 minutes of a performance).

Free Street Theatre at Marcus Square, Newry City. 

If the weather is inclement, the event will move to the Quays Shopping Centre, Newry at 12pm and the Buttercrane Shopping Centre, Newry at 2pm.
