2009 - 2010 | Parklife brought an impressive aerial playground to the public and embarked upon a creative journey before their very eyes.

100 deck chairs invited passers-by and local residents to join a joyful open-air circus residency. With parklife, NoFit State drew in the energy, passion and talents of communities up and down the UK through taster workshops, open house rehearsals, impromptu performances and early morning happenings.

Cheerleaders, kickboxers, freerunners and belly dancers worked together with out international company of world class circus artists to craft thrilling large scale outdoor shows, uniquely for and by the community.

Parklife pushed the boundaries of what can happen in public space to deliver a powerful, inspiring and spectacular celebration of the passion people share for what they do.
