„This is a story about everybody of us- about rise and fall, victory and loss, loneliness and warmth, that is understandable only for your soul“ L. Tsõganova

After creating „..and Red“ for Provincial Dances Theatre (Ekaterinburg, Russia) in March 2013, choreographers Tiina Ollesk and Renee Nõmmik asked interpret/composer Taavo Remmel to continue thier collaboration and create new piece for Fine5 Dance Theatre .

„..and Blue“ reflects the feelings of separation and loneliness both inside of us and outside. The conflict of fear and tension between the individuals and groups in society, where emphaty is forgotten value and calm calculative carelesness tends to be norm. This is abstract and metaforical piece for 6 dancers, where „Blue“ resembles both the fear that pushes us to act and at the same time pulls us back. „Blue“ also reflects the hidden inner strive to get over the fear and find one´s own freedom.

Virko Veskoja created additional rhytm/sounds for the recorded music. Taavo Remmel contrabass improvisations were recorded in summer 2014.
