Fermentation Workshop by Inês Neto dos Santos

Block Universe presents FERMEN-TOUR, a fermentation workshop by Inês Neto dos Santos. Since the beginnings of life on Earth, unseen microorganisms have been performing their collaborative dance on an infinite loop. The process of fermentation taps into the activity of bacteria, yeasts and moulds, teaching us the importance of community, cooperation and the interconnectedness of all things. In the workshop, participants learnt the basic principles for fermenting vegetables, while exploring fermentation as a site-specific practice. You can view a recording of the workshop on our website and give fermenting a go yourself until the end of June!

Block Universe is London’s leading performance art festival and international commissioning body. The fermentation workshop by Inês Neto dos Santos was commissioned on the occasion of Sessions, our first-ever virtual festival featuring workshops, podcasts, film, live performances and music, hosted from 25 to 30 May 2020.

Sessions was realised with Art Fund support.
