Family Physical Theatre Circus Australian premiere

BLOCK | NoFit State Circus & Motionhouse (UK)

BLOCK is 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.

What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another? BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges. Created by two of the United Kingdom's (UK) leading dance and circus companies, BLOCK has performed at festivals across the UK and Europe.

Don't miss this Australian debut.

"One of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Extraordinary choreography and athleticism completely mesmerising ! A definite must see!" Audience member, Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
