Block Universe, London‚Äôs leading international performance art festival, will run for 10 days, starting on the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend – 26 May to 3 June 2018.
Full programme and tickets here.
Positioning London at the forefront of international performance art, Block Universe 2018 will feature three UK premieres (Maria Hassabi, Giselle Stanborough and Nora Turato) and seven new, site-specific commissions (Evan Ifekoya & Victoria Sin, Gery Georgieva, Hanne Lippard, Alex Mirutziu, Last Yearz Interesting Negro/Jamila Johnson-Small, They Are Here and Laura Wilson) by artists working at the cross-section of contemporary visual art, dance and music. This year‚Äôs edition explores themes that act as a counterpoint to the current divisiveness created by contemporary politics, focusing on, as well as questioning, utopian ideals of community and collectivity. By addressing the ways in which we relate to one another, the contributors will respond both to the larger fabric of society that binds us as well as to the politics of sex and love in our personal relationships.
Block Universe‚Äôs expanded Public Programme will feature talks with key industry professionals, film screenings and participatory workshops. Our Satellite Programme is a new addition to the festival programme and highlights events, specially commissioned performances and exhibitions.
