Blue Man Group
The legendary blue men are back
Bluevolution is the name of the brand new show by the Blue Man Group, which combines popular classics by the ingenious Blue Men with innovative content. In April, they will also be performing on our stage. The three bald blue characters are now accompanied in their slapstick escapades by a female protagonist, The Musician, who replaces the traditional band as a multi-instrumentalist. With striking blue hair and an eccentric, alien look, she leads through the programme as a kind of shaman-like Master of Ceremonies.
A worldwide phenomenon
The Blue Man Group is a worldwide phenomenon. At fixed venues such as New York, Las Vegas, Boston, Chicago, Orlando or Berlin, the ingenious troupe has fascinated audiences with its multimedia performance for decades and thrilled over 40 million people in more than 20 countries. The Blue Man Group and their hit show are a brilliant reflection on modern times and technological overkill. The Blue Man use the stage as a playground for amusement and wonder. In a tangle of tubes, the Tubes, the trio performs with bizarre percussion instruments and obscure sound bodies.
Triumphant tour around the globe
The Blue Man Group emerged from the New York underground art scene of the late 80s. In 1987, Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink, who worked for a catering company in Manhattan, started out as street artists, organising happenings and doing short gigs in parks and clubs. They produced their first show, Tubes, at the legendary La Mamma Experimental Theatre Club. The Blue Man Group then moved to New York’s Astor Place Theatre. From New York, the group then began their triumphant march around the globe. “When we started creating the show around the innocent and curious ‘Blue Man’, we never dreamed of this success,” says co-founder Chris Wink. “We feel very honoured to be able to share our show with people in Germany and all over the world.”
Art, music and comedy – simply a brightly coloured party
Despite their mass appeal, there is always something mysterious surrounding Blue Man Group that is part of their appeal. With their combination of art, music, comedy and cutting-edge technology, Blue Man Group creates an unparalleled, mind-blowingly funny live experience that builds inexorably into a boisterous, brightly coloured party. And of course, the same goes for Bluevolution. The show has many new twists, but of course it features indispensable evergreens like water twirling drums, marshmallow throwing and paint spitting.
