NoFit State Shaping up in London
The most pioneering circus group since Cirque du Soleil has landed in London. What started out as a small group of young graduates and a youth worker entertaining the streets of Cardiff has transformed into NoFit State Circus, Europe’s best new circus.
Take a London flight and you’ll get a chance to see NoFit State Circus for yourself. Ali Williams, a co-runner of this circus group of the moment said ‘Cirque du Soleil’s skill level is incredible,’ but ‘their shows are boring.’
NoFit State hopes to inject a new sense of personality and accessibility into their stunning shows, which have been impressing Europe for years. The group has given way to an exclusive collaboration between the National Theatre Wales and the Théâtre Tattoo de Toulouse. Their stage performance at these two top Europe theatres will be revived this month in London.
One of the two remaining co-founders who begun their journey 25 years ago is Rack, ‘Circus creates a sense of escape that you might not get from other art forms.’
NoFit State should be ready and in shape for The London International Mime Festival, which starts on January 11. The company will be performing to a London crowd at the Queen Elizabeth Hall from January 20 with following shows later in the year.
