ImMortal

NoFit State Theatre , Winchester , July-05-04
With any luck, ImMortal will live up to its name and go on forever.

The latest, unconventional show from NoFit State Circus has been wowing audiences all over the country with its unique, breathtaking acts.

Circus member Tim Adam says: “We really affect people. I’ve seen members of the audience moved to tears after seeing us.”

“Immortal involves people through music drama, video projections, and our own ‘wow factor’.”

But nothing could prepare me for what this “wow factor” was. Forget traditional circuses with rows of seats and animal trainers and think more along the lines of Cirque du Soleil.

Except ImMortal is wackier, more surreal and quite literally in your face. Clowns walk among the audience, acrobats climb down from above and the live band plays on stilts. This is no ordinary circus – its contemporary theatre at its height.

If you’ve ever wondered what the future of circus is, a visit to Immortal will provide the answer.
