NoFit State Circus are set to present the world premiere of their new show at the Eden Project in St Austell this summer.

The as-yet untitled show follows 2011’s critically-acclaimed and sold-out Eden debut Labyrinth.

It was launched today (March 29) in the project’s Mediterranean Biome.

A contortionist, aerial rope acrobat, trampolinist and hula-hooper gave the audience in the Citrus Grove a taster of the new show, which will be themed around community.

The 22-night production will run at Eden before going on a world tour.

Featuring performers Adie Delaney, Leilani Franco, Kevin McIntosh and Max Calaf Seve, the new show will be written and directed by Firenza Guidi and produced by Tom Rack of NoFit State and Tom Critchley of the Eden Project – the same team who brought Labyrinth to Eden in 2011.

Tom Critchley told SouthWestShows: “Following the extraordinary sell-out success of last year’s NoFit State Circus show at Eden Project, we are delighted to welcome back our friends for a brand new co-production that will have its world premiere at Bodelva.

“Last year’s show was created especially for Eden’s 10th birthday celebrations, however it is intended that this year’s show will take the banner of Eden far and wide.”

Tom Rack added: “We can’t wait to return to Eden. After last year’s sell out success we know expectations are really high.

“Last year we fell in love with the stunning landscape and it seemed an instant fit for our promenade performance style.

“It’s a fantastic setting for our style of circus and the spirit of the Eden team was an inspiration.

“We were enchanted with the idea that every visitor would have a unique and personal journey – and that they’d interact with the place in an entirely new way.

“This year we root our show at the centre of Eden in a show nestled at the heart of the beautiful, ever-changing environment.

“We’re lucky to have the same fantastic creative team returning alongside an international cast to create another unforgettable spectacle.

“We can’t wait to catch up with old friends and welcome new ones to another truly unique contemporary circus experience. See you there!”

NoFit State Circus are at the Eden Project on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays between July 28 and September 2, 2012. See the Eden Project website for booking details.
