BLOCK

A collision of dance and circus

What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another?

Leading UK companies NoFit State Circus and Motionhouse bring together their unique styles in BLOCK, a powerful fusion of dance and circus that pushes the limits of both art forms. With its daring physicality, split-second timing and thrilling feats, BLOCK leaves audiences gasping.

Twenty oversized blocks, fashioned to resemble giant concrete Jenga blocks, are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore.

BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges.

Commissioned by Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts.
Co-production Archaos, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque Méditerranée and Le Citron Jaune, Centre National des Arts de la Rue. Supported by Arts Council England, Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru – Arts Council Wales, Llywodraeth Cymru – Welsh Government.
