BLOCK

Motionhouse & NoFit State

Share

Block is a powerful fusion of dance and circus, two disciplines that challenge the boundaries of the human body. It’s a physical, intense and exciting proposal that plays with movement and acrobatics to talk about life in the city, its contradictions and daily challenges. Twenty big blocks break down and are recomposed on stage, adopting new shapes among which performers move around. An amazing spectacle, arisen from the collaboration between two British high-flying companies.

Founded in 1988 by Louise Richards and Kevin Finnan, Motionhouse shows dance and circus productions both for the theatre hall and the street. Internationally well-known, the company's productions integrate physicality, narrative, digital imagery and exciting sound scores.

NoFit State is a contemporary circus company founded in Cardiff in 1986, and key figure within the field in the United Kingdom. His career includes production of shows, community training projects as well as training and education for people of all ages.

The companies Motionhouse and NoFit State will offer a circus-dance family workshop in Cornellà de Llobregat (on 17th, 12.15 h), Esplugues de Llobregat (on 24th, 13 h), Santa Coloma de Gramenet (on 23rd, 13 h) and Sant Cugat del Vallès (on 16th, 13 h).
