BIANCO

Part of Wintertime

Marvel at a circus performance like no other from internationally renowned company NoFit State.

You are at the centre of the action this all-consuming theatrical experience, which takes place above and all around you in a big top on the South Bank. As an electrifying live band ignites the room with fiery energy, world-class aerialists and performers fall from the ceiling, juggle, tumble and tightrope walk with jaw-dropping dexterity, as you stand in their midst.

This immersive contemporary circus show, directed by Firenza Guidi, is delivered with pulse-racing raw and infectious energy. Humour and tenderness mix in with the rollicking strains of blues, rockabilly and punk rock music, for a thrilling spectacle of elegance and edge.

Bianco is an out-and-out, oohs-and-aahs circus show that pushes all the right spectacular buttons ****
