Kinetika Bloco Summer School Finale - First In Line

Carnival comes to Southbank Centre at First in Line, the flamboyant finale to youth performance company Kinetika Bloco’s summer school.

In this free event, see 150 young musicians and dancers from south London perform a spectacular show created during the company’s intensive two-week summer school.

Inspired by the home of jazz, New Orleans, but with Kinetika Bloco’s distinctive London stamp, the show features brass, woodwind, steel pans, drums and dynamic costumed dance.

Produced and performed by Kinetika Bloco, one of Southbank Centre’s youth companies in residence.

A performance company creating a unique new British carnival sound, Kinetika Bloco aims to engage young people from south London in long-term creative activity, advancing their education, skills, and capacity for learning and leadership.
