Event Details

We are excited to be hosting BAMBOO by NoFit State – a spectacular new high-impact, high-skill outdoor circus production using only bamboo and human bodies – revealing the fragility and beauty of our interconnected and interdependent life on this planet.
 
The artists arrive at an empty stage, bringing bundles of bamboo. They build towering sculptures which morph, transform and become an improbable, delicate circus playground that seems to defy the laws of physics. 
 
Inhabited by world-class circus artists and acrobats, the structures bend, and flex, adding to the tension, drama, and sense of jeopardy that lies at the heart of great circus.
 
A meaningful, joyful performance with live music, comedy and amazing feats of strength and agility. 
 
Together we celebrate what’s possible when humans and the natural world trust each other and work in harmony.
