Review: NoFit State's Lexicon, Roundhouse - a few nail-biting thrills and an air of carefree fun and mischief
NoFit State's latest circus show Lexicon starts before the start with the band larking among the audience as they arrive making a competing cacophony with various wind instruments.
Do I sound old if I say it was a bit loud and well, annoying?
It doesn't settle down much when the show officially starts with the performers forming an unruly class of school kids, complete with old fashioned school desks for props.
There is a lot of competing noise and activity accompanied by loud live music and it wasn't until the show moved on to the first solo aerial act with straps that it got into a (calmer) stride.
Singers accompanied the live music and it is as much about grace as it is strength and the jeopardy of being so high with no safety net.
