NoFit State Circus: Noodles

Noodles is a new run at breaking down the barriers between circus and theatre, and sees NoFit State reinventing itself once more as it brings its work to the stage.

In a sea of irreverent chaos and a world of knots, wires and spaghetti, a surreal cooking show loses the plot as the noodles take over.

Directed by Maksim Komaro of Circo Aereo, and with a cast of international performers, Noodles combines world-class circus (handbalancing, close-up illusion, rope work and tight-wire) with film, comedy and innovative rigging.
