Spotlight UK Circus is led by NoFit State Circus and Crying Out Loud and funded by the Arts Council England International Showcasing fund. The initiative comes at a time when British contemporary circus is at a critical stage of development.
During the summer of 2017, NoFit State Circus worked with United Welsh Housing to deliver a series of weekly circus workshops alongside art and environmental sessions in the Caerphilly Communities First area of Bryn Aber.
NoFit State Circus teamed up with Caerphilly-based housing association United Welsh to bring some special performances and workshops to Bryn Aber, Lansbury Park, Aberbargoed and Tredegar during the summer of 2016.
The Circus Village is back, but not as you’ve seen it before. NoFit State Circus is teaming up with circus organisations and freelancers from across the UK to put together a programme to support and inspire the circus sector after one of its most difficult years.
