SABOTAGE tickets on sale! BOOK NOW



SABOTAGE, Stoke on Trent

Central Forest Park, Chell Street, Stoke-on-Trent, ST1 6BB, England. 23 June - 10 July 2022


Come and join the UK’s most extraordinary circus company, NoFit State under the Big Top.

NoFit State Circus is back with a new Big Top contemporary circus show. This time it is darker and grittier, with a more subversive edge. A boisterous performance with our trademark large scale spectacle, awe inspiring circus acts, new apparatus, exceptional original music, live projections, and more theatrical elements.

SABOTAGE challenges the status quo, it is an energising, uplifting and socially relevant contemporary circus production. Our personal journeys bring us to this place. Our struggles, and privileges, have shaped that journey. And yet we find ourselves in the common meeting ground of the circus tent, with the common language of circus. SABOTAGE explores our separation, and our belonging. Saboteurs stand out. They stand up. They challenge the establishment. They are heard.

Nothing in SABOTAGE makes it unsuitable for children, but it was not made specifically for them.
