Dance from the Deep

-

Just when you thought you’d heard everything… After underwater dining, underwater weddings, underwater pumpkin carving and even underwater music festivals, now we’ve got an underwater dance event (Dance from the Deep), which aims to shine a spotlight on the monster amounts of plastic currently threatening the world’s oceans.

This bizarre event, scheduled for October during the Amsterdam Dance Event and conducted in partnership with the Mission Live Foundation, is the brainchild of Dutch DJ Oliver Heldens, who will not only be manning the decks at Dance from the Deep in a purpose-built studio at 40m, he’ll be freediving down to his venue.

To be able to reach this depth, Heldens is currently hard in training with Dutch freediver Nanja van den Broek, the Variable Weight (VWT) world record holder after a stunning dive to 130m.

The Dance from the Deep event will be streamed online to a worldwide audience, helping to raise awareness of the ‘plastic soup’ clogging the world’s oceans and endangering marine life.
