Block Universe International Performance Art Festival, 2017

Block Universe is back for the third year running with a programme of newly commissioned performances, UK premieres, talks and workshops. This year’s festival theme will address 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 will champion work that questions the status quo in divisive times.

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.
