On Saturday we ducked out of the sun for a little while to see Tabú, the current production from No Fit State Circus, and an exploration of ‘the dark side’.
This is the third time I’ve seen No Fit State and I’ve been blown away each time. This is sexy circus. This is tightrope walking in heels, while wolfing down spaghetti or rolling a fag. It’s beatifully orchestrated mayhem. Making sure you stand in the right place not to get kicked in the face. The clown falling from the trapeze over and over until succeeding – a lesson for life?
It’s such a cliche, but it really does make me want to run away with the circus. The company run circus skills classes in Cardiff, which I attended once – great fun but I don’t think there’s a career in it for me sadly!
