“Britain’s leading large-scale contemporary circus company”
★★★★ The Times

“Pioneers of contemporary circus”

In 1768, Newcastle-under-Lyme’s famous equestrian and cavalryman, Philip Astley created the circus ring and invented the circus form.

As part of Circus250, NoFit State and Firenza Guidi will create LEXICON - a daring, seductive and utterly contemporary take on circus for a seated audience in the round. Drawing inspiration from circus history, heritage, and traditions, we dig in the underground of memory and celebrate the past, present and future of circus.

LEXICON is the coming together of the new and old languages of circus and the creation of a new voice for NoFit State.

Commissioned by New Vic Theatre
Funded by Arts Council England and the Arts Council of Wales
