Block Universe 2017BLOCK UNIVERSE, London, 2017
Block Universe is back for the third year running with a programme of newly commissioned performances, UK premieres, talks and workshops.
Taking place at renowned institutions, including the Royal Academy of Arts and Somerset House, as well as unique locations across the city, the week long festival presents work by some of the most exciting UK-based and international artists working in performance art today: Eglė Budvytytė, Işıl Eğrikavuk, Liz Magic Laser, Nicole Bachmann, Rory Pilgrim, Stina Nyberg, Will Rawls, Young In Hong, Zadie Xa and a first-time collaboration between Kim Coleman, Zoë Poluch and Cara Tolmie.
This year’s festival theme addresses notions of nationhood, inclusivity and identity politics set against a changing socio-political landscape. Looking at networked communities and the power of collective voices, Block Universe champions work that questions the status quo in divisive times.
