‘Ocean’s Edge’ reveals part of the plot of the HIPTRONICS show, which is centered around the adventures of the funny-looking character seen on the album cover. Only accompanied by his trusted pet dog, he suddenly finds himself standing outside of - merely being able to observe - the life he previously had. From this bewildered state, he starts a quest to find and regain his old life; travelling far beyond the reaches of his known inner and outer worlds. During this transition he soon realises that his goal must be to go full-circle: from estrangement, through chaos, to resolution and finally homecoming.

Azure Hiptronics upcoming performances:
Saturday 21 March 2015, De Nieuwe Regentes, Den Haag (NL)
Sunday 19 April 2015, Kulturni Dom Theatre, Gorizia (IT)
