NoFit State Circus: SABOTAGE

Thu 23 Jun–Sun 10 Jul

In partnership with Appetite, NoFit State Circus presents:

Another full-on, boisterous, and audaciously fierce performance with the NoFit State signature style.

SABOTAGE brings a darker, grittier, and more subversive edge to our trademark large scale contemporary circus spectacular. Back in the Big Top with incredible new acts, original music, new apparatus and a more theatrical feel, SABOTAGE challenges the status quo.

This is an energising, uplifting and socially relevant contemporary circus production. Our personal journeys bring us to this place. Our struggles, and privileges, have shaped that journey. And yet we find ourselves in the common meeting ground of the circus tent, with the common language of circus. SABOTAGE explores our separation, and our belonging. Saboteurs stand out. They stand up. They challenge the establishment. They are heard.

SABOTAGE is grown up circus, that is not unsuitable for children.

Directed by Firenza Guidi.

Supported by: Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council England, Garfield Weston Foundation
