NoFit State Circus leads the Brighton Festival Extra with their ’awe-inspiring’ show SABOTAGE

Wales’ flagship contemporary circus company NoFit State, make a long-awaited return to Brighton this August as part of Brighton Festival’s extended summer programme Festival Extra with an energising and uplifting large scale circus spectacular SABOTAGE.

Festival audiences in Brighton will be the last in the UK to see SABOTAGE this August 2024 in the Big Top at the all-new Black Rock Event site on Madeira Road, before it heads to mainland Europe.   

SABOTAGE is an exceptional large scale circus spectacular with breath-taking skills, stunning imagery and NoFit State’s signature theatrical feel. Audiences can also enjoy the power of live music with an incredible live band at the heart of the show. Audiences in Brighton were wowed by LEXICON back in 2018 which performed to sell out audiences.

SABOTAGE explores the journeys we take; the struggles and privileges that shape our lives. We have all travelled different paths to get to where we are today. Yet those different journeys bring us together in the meeting place of the circus tent, to celebrate our common ground. 

SABOTAGE challenges the status quo. SABOTAGE explores their separation, and their belonging. Saboteurs stand out. They stand up. They challenge the establishment. They are heard.

Tickets for SABOTAGE are available from the Brighton Dome Ticket Office and Earlybird tickets are available from £15 with promo code: BIGTOP20, valid until 31 May.
