Shoppers at Bullring & Grand Central can expect something a little out of the ordinary this Saturday as Motionhouse and NoFit State Circus showcase BLOCK .
BLOCK is a collaboration between the two companies; 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.
Dance and circus will collide on the Lower Mall (Level 0) outside of Disney Store and Debenhams in performances that are free for visitors to watch.
The performance centres around twenty oversized blocks that are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore. The performance comes as part of a partnership between Bullring & Grand Central and Birmingham Hippodrome, following previous events during 2019 including Chinese New Year and St Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Danielle Bozward, Marketing Manager at Bullring & Grand Central, commented: “We’re delighted to be offering our customers a chance to catch these spell bounding performances from Motionhouse and NoFit State and ultimately providing them with a shopping experience unlike no other. Where else can you see dance, circus and shopping come together?!”
Graham Callister, Director of Festivals for Birmingham Hippodrome commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Bullring & Grand Central to grow the cultural offering for the city in new and exciting spaces. The performance on Saturday is another great event in our partnership and we look forward to bringing more spectacular work to Bullring & Grand Central over the coming months.”
Performances will take place at 1pm and 4pm.
