Nobulus Out of the Shadow

Nobulus "Out of the Shadow"

2013

Out of the Shadow is an extraordinary mix of breakdance, popping and locking, contemporary dance, acrobatics and ballet. It tells a cautionary tale, from the creation of the Universe and evolution of man through to an imaginary apocalyptic future. Using only their bodies, this 10-strong crew create otherworldly scenes by morphing themselves into structures, creatures and even machines. Set to an epic soundtrack, we see primal images of sacrifice and betrayal, of love and pleasure, death and destruction in this thrilling show.

“Nobulus from Austria drove the audience wild…loaded with freshness and verve.” The Times

“Jawdropping.” Ballet.co.uk

“Tall, wired and graceful, this Austrian crew used the disjointed, cartoonish energy of hip hop to transform themselves into an eerie variety of forms – from flickering cosmic matter to an apocalyptic battle of human tanks and guns.” The Guardian

“The strong team essayed a mammoth fable of evolution with an anti-war message, calling on musical support from bursts of Khachaturian, Richard Strauss, Rachmaninov and La Donna E Mobile. Nothing if not eclectic.” Sunday Times

“Alex Wengler’s masterpiece was unlike anything I’ve seen in terms of originality and captured the true artform of dance.” RWD Magazine
