Hall By The Sea
Motionhouse and NoFit State Circus bring together their unique styles in BLOCK - an exciting new collaboration.
What happens when dance and circus collide?
BLOCK is a powerful fusion of dance and circus that pushes the limits of both art forms, using daring physicality, split-second timing and thrilling feats.
Twenty oversized blocks are deconstructed and reformed for the performers to play on, move with and explore. BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges.
This event is part of the Coasters project.
Supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund, Coasters is a three year project that brings world-class circus and street arts work to coastal towns across England.
SeaChange Arts lead a consortium of 10 organisations with the shared ambition of building relationships with audiences in areas of lower engagement and helping transform perceptions of coastal towns.
Coasters will see top quality UK and international circus and street arts work programmed in events and festivals around the coast of England. Each Coasters partner will work with their own local partners to build audiences among the lowest engaged, while the project will also look to increase visitor audiences to each location.
Brilliant, exciting, engaging, entertaining and accessible, the work presented will be programmed with the coast in mind – resonant and reflective of coastal locations and audiences.
