Tour starts in:

Black Out as a projection screen for your imagination

We live in an automated world. Online calendars, e-cars, driverless trains, music streams, touch displays from the train station to the supermarket, ...As fascinating as these systems are, they are also sensitive and fragile. The more we rely on technology being there for us, the more a dependency relationship is established - a blackout would mean a complete interruption of our daily routines.

In our production "Black Out" we use this rather unpleasant scenario as a starting point for creative adventures. The scenery is an underground train station; the protagonists kindly ignore each other, they are busy with themselves. Suddenly power is gone, only the lights of smartphones illuminate the room. Otherwise - no light, no phone reception, locked in isolation, alone with strangers. Fears and tension are released; in a mixture of an emerging sense of community and boredom in the dark, fantasy finds a wonderful breeding ground.

In contrast to the analogue existence in a blackout, the flowmotion dance company combines a variety of state-of-the-art media and cutting-edge technology for the creation of digital dreamworlds. 3D mapping, projection dance, shadow plays and e-mobility gadgets in harmony with music, dance and artistry.

Digital art meets analogue play.

The audience experiences intense choreographies in perfect symbiosis with impressive audio-visual effects, magical illusions and visually powerful dramas. A real-life story that could happen to anyone - technically elaborate and on the highest artistic level! An unprecedented show experience for all generations!

Other special features:

  • In Black Out, show techniques that have achieved notoriety through television and viral online videos are combined elegantly to a full-evening production and presented live to the audience.
  • By combining classic theatre elements with contemporary digital art and an accompanying social media campaign, Black Out is truly an experience for all generations.
  • In Black Out, we use only LED lights and state-of-the-art projectors. We want to show what the theatre of the future can look like. Creative and energy-saving!
  • This show is designed for touring. Stage & power connection - that's all we need. Stage set, dance floor, mixing desks, sound, lighting and projection technology - we bring everything ourselves.
  • While on tour, all crew members live in our nightliner. Apart from catering, there are no additional costs for us.

In January 2020, Black Out was performed in Berlin - a sneak peek what we could bring to your city soon!

»Black Out is an invitation to not only look up from your smartphone in extreme moments, to take the plugs out of your ears and meet those people who are standing next to you right now.«
