Trash City

The Roundhouse Theatre, London

April 2010

Block9 first created the NYC Downlow for Glastonbury Festival in 2007 as part of a brand new, collaborative, late night area called 'Trash City'. Incorporating the most raucous elements of theatre, circus, cabaret and live music, Trash City was hailed as one of the most exciting and innovative events to hit the UK festival scene. In 2010 Block9 worked with co-founders Ruth Powell and Joe Rush from The Mutoid Waste Company to bring Trash City to the stage as part of The Roundhouse Circus Fest. The original NYC Downlow was adapted and re-constructed in all it's post-apocalyptic glory as the main stage set for the show which also featured music and performance from Downlow cabaret stars and DJ's.
