Bank Holiday Monday is usually a time for the less cerebral of pleasures: eating, drinking and spending eight hours on the couch watching Drag Race reruns, but this year there’s something to feed your mind as well as your belly. The Block Universe Festival – a ten-day celebration of international performance art – will be weaving its way through venues all over the city. It kicks off with Maria Hassabi’s Staging: Solo #2 where she slowly makes her way across a huge bright pink carpet on The Strand, and then serves up a string of premieres and site-specific works. There’s much to much to go into here so head to the website for a menu of extraordinary works, many of them free.
