Theatre Preview: Lego® Beach @ 1532 Performing Arts Centre
by Polly Hember

If 4.8 million pieces of Lego washed up on your shore, what would you do? Not all things that sink stay buried…

INKBLOC presents their latest production Lego® Beach as part of Bristol Old Vic’s Studio Walkabout season. Taking inspiration from a happening in 1997 where a freak storm caught a containership out at sea, sending nearly five million pieces of Lego into the depths of the oceans and carried away on rip tides. Inspired by this sad and whimsical truth,


INKBLOC ensemble present Lego® Beach, a tale about a small community whose lives are broken and built anew with the snap of a Lego block. This production will see clever and haunting live music to accompany the tale, with found-sound and eerie harmonies to envision the seaside town who face the un-natural disaster.

INKBLOC ensemble have been creating together since September 2016 and in this time they have already developed a unique creative stance on creation, movement, sound and theatre. Lego® Beach will be performed at 1532 Performing Arts Centre as part of Bristol Old Vic’s Studio Walkabout season which allows the Studio work to continue at alternative venues until Bristol Old Vic completes its redevelopment in September 2017.
