NoFit State - Bianco

NoFit State

Company Name:

NoFit State

Description of the Company:

NoFit State is driven by the desire to create powerful performances that explore and push the boundaries of accepted forms in new and revelatory ways. The company aspires to create work that's sensuous, immediate and enthralling, that challenges preconceptions and raises questions, that breaks down the barriers created by empty virtuosity, and builds a company in which ordinary people do extraordinary things.

Aims in Edinburgh:

NoFit State is presenting two productions in Edinburgh in 2013: Bianco and Noodles.

Both productions are available for touring both within the UK and internationally from spring 2014 onwards.

Bianco is a promenade production and can be performed either within our Big Top or within a theatre / venue without seating. Capacity will be 500 – 800 depending on venue size.

Noodles is designed for mid-scale proscenium arch theatres with a capacity of 300 – 500

Production Description:

With NOODLES we take a run at the barriers between circus and theatre, reinventing ourselves and moulding our work for the theatre stage. In a sea of irreverent chaos and a world of knots, wires and spaghetti, a surreal cooking show loses the plot as the noodles take over. Aerialists, hand-balancers, wire-walkers, contortionists and magicians twist and bend the frontiers of reality.
