Seriously silly in Salford

Britain’s leading contemporary circus takes the stage in Salford tonight and Saturday with its new show Noodles.

NoFit State brings its show to the city’s Lowry arts centre as part of a UK-wide tour.

Amid a sea of chaos and a world of knots, wires and spaghetti, Noodles is a surreal journey of five quirky characters and their relationship with the stringy food staple.

Aerialists, hand-balancers, wire-walkers, contortionists and magicians twist and bend reality in a family friendly production.

Tom Rack, NoFit State’s creative director said: “We set out to do something new and different; we take a run at the barriers between circus and theatre, challenging genres, reinventing ourselves and our work for the theatre stage.

“Noodles has no pretention to be serious theatre but it is serious circus and seriously fun.”
