An Artsadmin Project


Station House Opera

Friday 13 May, 6pm

This is a past event which has now ended.

Dominoes, by Station House Opera, takes as its starting point the simplest of ideas… a line of dominoes. Thousands of breezeblocks are used to create a moving sculpture which traverse the city, unfolding over the course of the day.

On streets, through parks, buildings and even on water, occasionally disappearing and then resurfacing, sometimes pausing for sculptural performances, the domino line threads its way through historical and everyday parts of the city, linking its diverse communities in a symbolic as well as physical chain of cause and effect.

Creating a celebration across the whole city, Dominoes transforms its rhythm for one special day. The project has the power to bring communities together through participation and engagement – hundreds of volunteers and audience members gather together to make this exceptional and unique event.

Dominoes will travel through Norwich City Centre, starting at Anglia Square and finishing at The Forum, beginning our 250th anniversary Festival! Find a spot along the route to watch the dominoes topple.


Want to be a part of Dominoes? We’re looking for 200 volunteers to help build the route and be part of this unique city-wide event! If you’d like to get involved, email or click below for more info.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
