NoFit State Circus Showcase in Quebec
The award winning critically acclaimed NoFit State Circus took tabú to North America for the first time in July 2010.
Based in Wales, NoFit State Circus is the leading UK contemporary circus company and their last production, Immortal, achieved cult status on the European circus circuit and won prestigious awards at several international festivals.
Already seen by over 125,000 people across Europe, tabú brings together theatre, dance, live music, and circus to create a joyous promenade production in which the action takes place above, amongst, and around the audience.
"tabú poses the question: why is it that humans choose the dark side? Or is it the dark side that chooses us? tabú is a new journey and exploration into the darker side of being. It isn’t a freak show, it isn’t voyeurism. It is the tissue we are made of and which like death itself we cannot fully grasp, let alone explain."
Nofit State's visit to Montreal's first international circus Festival and the home of Cirque Eloise and Cirque du Soleil was funded by Wales Arts International and the British Council.
"A vividly entertaining and tumultuous new promenade production."
-The Times, UK
"Cirque Du Soleil without the Disney and the disinfectant... this is the future of British Circus."
- The Guardian
This was an adventurous initiative by Nofit State Circus and came from hard work and determination in building relationships internationally. Having prepared the way over several years, including joining a delegation from Wales to CINARS in Montreal two years ago, it was wonderful that the company raised the profile of Wales and developed market opportunities in a new context in North America.
