What would have happened in 1963 if someone from the voguing ball scene in Harlem had come to downtown New York to perform alongside the early post-moderns at the Judson Church?

That question is the impetus for this performance by American choreographer Trajal Harrell, making a rare appearance in London with Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (S). One of the most prominent choreographers of his generation, Harrell revisits the history of contemporary dance, highlighting how history is partly a fiction.

Following a successful launch in 2015, Block Universe comes to Sadler’s Wells for the first time. This annual festival brings together a new wave of cutting-edge performance art at the cross-section of contemporary visual art, dance and music in major institutions and unique venues across London.

"There is nothing we love more in London than cutting edge performative art events, so it’s about time we got our very own festival"
