BLOCK Summer Tour Review

Relive the summer highlights of BLOCK

4th October 2019

As summer has definitely ended and autumn is upon us, we thought it would be nice to look back on some sunny highlights of the BLOCK tour!

BLOCK, our thrilling dance-circus collaboration with NoFit State Circus, was seen this summer by an incredible 55,836 people! Our brilliant cast performed 63 shows across 17 cities and festivals, spanning 7 countries: Spain, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Czech Republic and the United Kingdom.

We thought we’d share some highlights of the BLOCK tour below, starting with incredible performances at Festival Mueca in Tenerife, Spain, with a standing ovation from our audience. Relive this magical moment by checking out the video below:

The cast also got to experience the football euphoria in Liverpool, performing at the River Festival 2019 the weekend Liverpool won the UEFA Champions League. A personal highlight of BLOCK performer Bryn, who is an enthusiastic Liverpool supporter!

BLOCK also made waves at the International Theatre Festival in Ludwigshafen, Germany, winning the Judges Choice Award!

For our last weekend of the summer tour, we were thrilled to perform BLOCK hosted by Birmingham Bullring and Grand Central, in partnership with our friends from Birmingham Hippodrome.
