London premiere of Lexicon, contemporary circus from NoFit State
Following sell out performances across Europe and the UK, NoFit State Circus' LEXICON comes to London for a strictly limited season at the Roundhouse promising audiences a spirited and mischievous start to the New Year. LEXICON is a world inhabited by quiet misfits and furious poetry, a world of magic, light and laughter. Be entertained by moments of wild abandon, as the company take to the air riding flying desks or juggle flaming torches. Be awed by moments of physical poetry with expressive aerial acrobatics involving ropes, trapeze and more. NoFit State showcase an array of breathtaking contemporary circus skills, presented in their signature playful style, all set to atmospheric music from a live band. "Lexicon is class act" ★★★★ What's On Stage "...physical poetry with a large dollop of nostalgia" The Guardian “Proper heart-in-mouth stuff” The Stage

    A beautiful, funny, exciting and eccentric show. Great music and a brilliant night out!

    The acrobats were in general quite good. But they didn't manage to nail some of the more difficult tricks. The show was let down by the overall production, I had no idea what the story was about and the accompanying music was pretty average. I feel like the show didn't fully capitalise on the talents of the acrobats.

    Fantastic music as well as circus acts.

    I had not read anything about the show beforehand nor watched any videos, and my choice to go was a spur of the moment one so I had no expectations. I went with my wife and our children (7 and 8 yo). The view from our seats was fine despite being the back row but I imagine any seat in the Roundhouse would be fine in that regard. Overall my children enjoyed it but started to show signs of having had enough towards the end (2.25 hours long including 20 min break). Throughout there is a live band playing (and singing) which I quite enjoyed. There were the expected contents of high wire, juggling, acrobatics, trick cycles etc all interjected with some humour and with a contemporary feel (no ring master and many performers coming and going). Overall I'd give it a solid 7/10, and I'm not really a circus fan, but both kids said they enjoyed it
