Block Party is an energetic work celebrating the power of imagination and play. Square and rectangular blocks inhabit the space - they are many sizes, like childhood toys redesigned to meet an adult scale and aesthetic. Dancers enter and activate the space, performing rhythmic, audacious movement inspired by the geometry of the blocks, which they manipulate into stacks, shapes and evolving architectures.
