Description

Throw up a tent, roust up a crowd, put on a show and blow their minds. Just a day in the office for circus folk.

It's been 250 years since Philip Astley dreamed up the circus ring and along the way created modern circus as we know it. Now the UK's leading large-scale contemporary circus company NoFit State has taken that pivotal moment as the springboard from which to launch their latest spectacle, Lexicon.

Circus is like a physical language we hear with our bodies. The creak of tensing muscles, the gasp of breath expelled, the hiss of a limb whipping through the air and the slap of skin connecting – it's no wonder circus is the form that speaks to all ages.

Lexicon gathers from that common tongue as it has evolved down the centuries, creating a new voice to herald the past, present and future of the form. Daring, seductive and utterly contemporary, Lexicon is a close encounter of the circus kind, audiences placed nose-to-nose with international artists who have perfected their craft in ways nobody else has managed. Come feel what drives them.
