What happens when circus and dance collide? An exciting collaboration with Motionhouse. Created and Directed by Kevin Finnan, Original concept, design and production, Ali Williams, Additional circus direction, Paul Evans

Twenty oversized blocks are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore. What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another?

The modern city is a nest teeming with activity. Human life streams through it. BLOCK is about living in the city, its contradictions and its challenges. Living large, living fast and sometimes living in the cracks, this extraordinary cast stay on their toes to survive and thrive in the world of blocks. 

Commissioned by

Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts.

Co-production by

Archaos, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque Méditerranée and Le Citron Jaune, Centre National des Arts de la Rue.
