BLOCK


September 2015 - January 2016

A DDT (Dance Dramaturgy Turbulence) Project

Displacement, balance, obsession, social loss, gentrification, hip hop dancers, disorder, in the space of theatre, imbalance, community, compulsion, beneath the modern day precipices, rubble and memory…Turbulence. 

BLOCK is a DDT research and development project. It is inspired and informed by engaged research into the effects of displacement and social loss on mental health and community: exploring a territory that comments on the modern day precipices that many individuals and communities balance upon.
