Out of the blue

Danielle Huyghe and Alexandra Verschuuren

Out of the blue is a multidisciplinary dance duet that revolves around the reality of dreams. A journey of waking and sleeping falls upon the performers, where order and chaos collide bringing out experiences we tend to ignore.

The audience is taken through different scales of intensity where they long to resolve the anxiety they experience during dreams. The REM sleep is interpreted and experienced, shown through the physical qualities of activity and relaxation. We bring ourselves and the audience into a journey of structured chaos. This is brought to the performers by exhausting the repetition in their movements and by involving their personal experiences into the piece.
