Block Universe

Block Universe is an annual festival that brings together a new wave of cutting-edge performance art at the cross-section of contemporary visual art, dance and music in major institutions and unique venues across London. Block Universe will return for its fourth edition from 26 May to 3 June 2018, with an expanded public programme.

Our goal is to create a long-term, sustained engagement with performance art by commissioning UK-based artists, as well as inviting international artists, to premiere new work. In pioneering this new platform, Block Universe aims to position London at the forefront of the dialogue surrounding performance art internationally.

Block Universe is founded by Louise O’Kelly, and the team includes Xica Aires, Production Manager; Tatjana Damm, Business Development; Halime Özdemir, Development Manager; Katharina Worf, Public Programme, and Celine Roblin-Robson, Project Assistant.

The team is supported by an advisory panel comprised of Steven Bode, Alessandra Canavesi, Amy Stephens, Fatos Ustek and Robert Violette.

We would also like to acknowledge our gratitude towards founding members of the Block Universe team, without whom none of this would be possible. Thank you to Nicky van Breugel and Burcu Yuksel for their time and energy.
