NoFitState: BIANCO

Bianco

It was the guardian description of the performance as ‘Cirque du Soleil without the Disney and the disinfectant‘ that made me think – I must see it!

NoFitState contemporary circus production BIANCO is currently on show at the Roundhouse, and I would definitely recommend the experience. Yes, I use this word deliberately, since unlike many traditional circus performances, this show does not unfold in front of a passively sited audience ready to consume to spectacle. Instead, it offers you to take part (no experience needed!). Like Alice in Wonderland, the audience walks from one magic scene to another and spectators become participants.

The show has no backstage, inviting the audience to watch it from inside. By taking a nothing-to-hide approach and leaving no mystery unsolved, it makes a stronger impact, as we are fascinated by the capabilities of a human body, not clever trick of a theater production.
