BLOCK: the roundup!


October is well and truly here and we’ve been reminiscing about the summer just gone…

And what an incredible summer it was!

We took brand new show BLOCK, created in collaboration with NoFit State Circus, on its first ever tour. The daring performers wowed audiences across the UK and Europe with a unique blend of  dance and circus. Interacting with the tower block set – 6 metres high when fully built – the seven-strong team performed the show over 70 times between May and September.

Did you see the show? We’d love to hear your feedback so that we can learn more about our audiences and how we can give them the best possible experience when they come to see our work. We’ve created a survey that will take you less than five minutes to complete. You’ll find it here:

Scattered 2016 – 2017 Tour




We are delighted to announce that our spectacular theatre production Scattered is back on tour this autumn!

The tour starts at Warwick Arts Centre in October, moving on to theatres across the UK and Europe! Check the tour list below to find a show near you.

Scattered combines Motionhouse’s highly physical trademark style with entrancing digital imagery in an extraordinary interaction between film and live performance. Seven dancers delve into the majesty and savagery of water, plunging into an ocean, tumbling down a waterfall and sliding on an avalanche to a frozen landscape of arctic beauty.

Scattered uses projection technology, daring choreography and a ground-breaking set to create an extraordinary world where dancers and images interact seamlessly. Capturing the imagination with its spellbinding and ingenious choreography, Scattered is a great family night out.
