Cool, playful and captivating! Intergalactic Underwater Palace is a celebrated dance production for children (8-13 years) by Riksteatern and Cullbergbaletten. The show will challenges your senses and create a journey through another galaxy. How does my body feel under water? How would a robot behave in a royal palace? Can we just imagine it or can we actually experience it? 

The dancers will move surprisingly and dynamically among the audience in a scenography that becomes like a living, humorous organism. The choreographer Sebastian Matthias, born and raised in Germany, has created an exciting and playful performance involving all the senses.

– Intergalactic Underwater Palace is a show about senses and a journey through different worlds. I am curious about how different impressions that not really belong together affect each other. An underwater environment combined with movements from a robot or space. How does that environment affect your body? How does it feel? That is how I would like to work with bodies and environments. I want the children’s playfulness to become a part of the show, says Sebastian Matthias.

Intergalactic Underwater Palace is a co-production between Riksteatern and Cullbergbaletten.
