Absolutely Cultured – Dominoes

August 11, 2018

Over 12,000 blocks.
450 volunteers.
Dominoes by Station House Opera will be our first major event for the city. Internationally acclaimed, it will play with the architecture of the city on a 3.5km domino run for all to enjoy – a moving sculpture, both playful and epic. Created from thousands of breeze blocks and constructed by over 400 volunteers, Dominoes will weave its way through Hull’s streets, public squares, civic buildings and private homes, climbing stairs, falling from windows and occasionally conquering a structure built from yet more blocks. Creating a celebration across the city centre, Dominoes will transform the rhythm of Hull for one special day as it reclaims the city’s streets.

12noon – 2.30pm: Get Ready! Watch the dominoes being assembled.
