Block Universe presents Gery Georgieva

Tickets available: Buy tickets

Block Universe, London’s leading international performance art festival will run for 10 days, from the 26 May to 3 June 2018.

This year’s edition explores themes that act as a counterpoint to the current divisiveness created by contemporary politics, focusing on, as well as questioning, utopian ideals of community and collectivity. By addressing the ways in which we relate to one another, the contributors will respond both to the larger fabric of society that binds us as well as to the politics of sex and love in our personal relationships.

Positioning London at the forefront of international performance art, Block Universe 2018 will feature a site-specific commission by artits Gery Georgieva.

The artist’s new piece of live work will transform the premises of the Oval Space with a multimedia installation. This work will explore the relationship between folk and provincial culture and the commercialised, neo-liberal paradigm of individualistic empowerment. Featuring a pop soundtrack with both original music and a selections of covers, the artist will use her own voice and body as a site for these considerations and reconfigurations.
