On Wednesday 20 June (Medway) and Friday 22 June (Canterbury), join us for breathtaking performances to launch the Kent Festival of Dangerous Ideas.
Leading UK companies NoFit State Circus and Motionhouse bring together their unique styles in BLOCK, a powerful fusion of dance and circus that pushes the limits of both art forms. With its daring physicality, split-second timing and thrilling feats, BLOCK leaves audiences gasping.Twenty oversized blocks, fashioned to resemble giant concrete Jenga blocks, are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore. BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges.
You may remember Motionhouse as the company who brought the dancing diggers to bOing! in 2015. They combine circus and dance to create spectacular, physical performances that have wowed crowds across the world. We are delighted to have them back at the University once again.
The performance times are:
- 12.15 (at staff BBQ)
- 13.30 (as part of the staff BBQ)
- 16.30 (open to all staff and public)
Everyone is welcome, and the 16.30 performance is open to all family and friends as well – so please spread the word. https://thegulbenkian.co.uk/event/block/
