Well, lets see if this blog lasts longer than a bored afternoon. Lotus domino, community wireless networks, Camberwell, greater London Ladies Drinking Club, mojitos, Burning Man and big art in general...

lovely. divine. inspiring. amazing. amusing.

at Potters Fields next to mayors bollock-building. I got a heads up through SOFAS network announcement. Went on Friday evening with mates. Got into the tent and was herded with rest of audience to what seemed like one side of the tent. I could see the arena where there was an obvious performance space, but it was exluded from bar area by some gauze like hangings. Sights - horizontal pole about 9 feet high - perched atop that, a bathtub. In that, a man. An old fashioned barbers chair, raised a couple of feet - dude in it, peeling apple with a cut throat razor. Fab band on stage - clarinet, sax, drums, percussion... Gal with hoops- rocked it!! ah...too much to describe - just go and see it.


The audience enter the extraordinary spaceship style big top and find themselves immersed in a spectacular theatrical environment. Immortal is a promenade event and the show explodes around, above and among the audience in a multi-sensory feast of circus, drama, text, dance, music and large scale video.
Immortal is audacious, ambitious, anarchic, surreal, magical, breath-taking, thought-provoking and funny; an irreverent and spectacular meditation on one of the biggest questions of the human race: are we immortal?

"Drawing on similar sources as Cirque Du Soleil, its latest show is a sensual overload of aerial acrobatics, rope work, tumbling and performance art."
- The metro
"Ditching traditional circus trappings of animals and clowns, this intoxicating, tumultuous production for all ages by the Cardiff-based NoFit State Circus climbs towards headier theatrical realms."
- The Times
"Providing the powerful background to this visual assault of the senses is a fantastic music score, performed by a first-rate band"
