This group of internationally renowned artists joined forces with the Iceland Dance Company in the creation of a Transaquania - Out of the Blue, a singularly unique event at the famous Blue Lagoon in Iceland in April 2009. The artistic team transformed the lagoon into a magical new world. The performance revised theories of evolution and tribal rituals to create a new physical mythology of this very unique manmade lake. Out of the blue waters, new life forms were born, a civilization rapidly evolved, and finally declined back into the same blue waters from which they emerged.
