Following a successful launch in 2015, Block Universe returns for its second edition with a week-long celebration of performance art by local and international artists across major institutions.

About

With new commissions and presentations taking place at venues such as the British Museum, DRAF (David Roberts Art Foundation), ICA, Royal Academy of Arts, Sadler’s Wells and Somerset House, as well as unique off-site locations, Block Universe presents work by some of the most exciting UK-based and international performance artists practicing today.

A limited number of Festival Passes and VIP Tickets for the week will be available. These passes entitle the bearer to attend every performance as well as offering exclusive access to the artists and special events.

With the theme of The Future Perfect, performances will explore relationality in a mediated society, the construction of identity alongside body enhancement, aging and immortality. Using the motifs of shared experience, relationality, individualism and anonymity as experienced through technology to locate the virtual in physical time and space, artists will focus on historical and future representations of the self as embodied in the present.

This year’s edition of Block Universe will be accompanied by a public programme consisting of talks, film screenings and workshops.
