NoFit State Circus and Motionhouse present
BLOCK – A show by NoFit State Circus and Motionhouse BLOCK is collaboration between NoFit State Circus and Motionhouse - a startling 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.
What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another? Twenty oversized 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. Living large, living fast and sometimes living in the cracks, this extraordinary cast stay on their toes to survive and thrive in the world of blocks.
