About The Victoria Theatre

The Victoria Theatre Company was the first professional company in Britain to perform permanently in the round – that is, with the audience on all sides of the acting area. Today, The New Vic is known both for its professional productions and for its award-winning work in the community.   The company’s first base was Scarborough from which it toured to towns without their own theatres, taking the ‘theatre’ with it – raked platforms providing in-the-round seating for 250. Newcastle-under-Lyme was visited regularly and a permanent North Staffordshire home was planned. On 9 October 1962, a converted cinema opened its doors as a theatre, an event that received no mention in the national press.  In 1983 an appeal was launched to raise funds for a new theatre.  With local donations totalling over £1 million, the New Vic opened in August 1986.  In the years since, the New Vic’s work has developed an increased national and international reach with productions transferring to London and Manchester, and partnerships formed with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre Studio.

 

About Lexicon

LEXICON is commissioned by New Vic Theatre as part of the Circus Past, Present and Future programme Co -produced in association with Tombee de la Nuit, Rennes, Marseille Biennale International des Arts du Cirque, and Cirque Jules Verne, Le Pôle National Cirque et Arts de la Rue, Amiens.

 

About NoFit State

Created in 1986 by five friends, NoFit State is a community bound by a common passion and a collective journey. They make stories without narrative – creating work that is poignant and poetic. They use largescale imagery, circus, live music, movement and innovative design. They invent worlds where the boundaries between the real and the imaginary, the possible and the impossible, become blurred, where the frontiers between artists and audiences are broken, where nothing is hidden and everything revealed. They create work on all scales and deliver community and participatory projects alongside their professional performances. They hope to inspire their audience to step out of themselves for a moment, have their dreams fed, their spirits nourished and for them to leave uplifted and perhaps stirred to challenge themselves and their world.
