Your circus classes with NoFit State

I'm working on some exciting developments for our community programme. This new vibrant programme of circus classes should be ready for the end of the summer, but I'd like your feedback.

This is the proposed new programme for the autumn term, which I’m putting out for consultation with yourselves over the next week.

The Open House Journey 2014

Open House crew

The Open House journey for 2014 kicked off with a week of redevelopment in Cardiff in May. Artistic director Orit Azaz, and circus choreographer Paul Evans, led a cast of talented performers, which included a few new faces for this year, through their paces for the 2014 performances.

A visit from Serenity Smith Forchion

We're really excited about Serenity Smith Forchion's visit to our HQ in October. She will be running 'An Introduction to Teaching Aerials' for anyone who's ever wished to become an aerial teacher, or to improve on their existing teaching experience.

Get involved

This spring, exciting things are happening at NoFit State. We will be putting our Big Top up next to the training space at John Street, and bringing home our internationally acclaimed show, Bianco. We will also be developing our outdoor show Open House right outside in the car park.

In the lead up to this exciting season, we are inviting all of our community to get more involved. With two big projects happening alongside all our classes, it’s a great opportunity for everybody to meet and check out what’s going on.

Half Term Youth Circus at Four Elms

Four Elms burst into action last week with a fun packed half term programme of circus skills for young people.

BIANCO is coming home!

We're returning home with our award-winning show BIANCO, a show that has set audiences alight throughout the world.

Dubbed the “runaway hit of this year’s festival” by The Western Australian, BIANCO is stirring up a storm at the renowned Perth International Arts Festival, performing to sell-out audiences and great critical acclaim. In a few weeks, we'll be flying to our hometown, ready to launch this years' summer tour right in the heart of Cardiff city centre.

Tales from Perth

Hello from everyone at Bianco!

We're currently in Perth, Australia. My computer is telling me it's 35 degrees and with only Ariele armed with a fan and sunglasses, it's pretty toasty. We're having a great run here and with our final show tomorrow it's coming to an end much sooner then we'd have liked it to. The show opened nearly three weeks ago and has been receiving great reviews, sell out audiences and has definitely been worth the 9,122 miles most of us traveled to get here.

Welcome to Four Elms

Our new home!

The first weekend in February saw the doors of our new home thrown open to the public for the first time, just a couple of weeks after we started the putting trapezes in the air and getting our offices up and running.

The builders have done us proud, with a beautiful renovation; lots of the original features of the original chapel building have been lovingly restored, including the stained glass windows that give the space a warm, colorful atmosphere.
