"Bianco" by UK's NoFit State Circus to be staged at Queen Elizabeth Stadium for five days (with photos)

     "Bianco" by NoFit State Circus from the UK will offer Hong Kong audiences a panoramic contemporary circus performance at Queen Elizabeth Stadium from today (February 17). The show is one of the attractions of "Circus in Town" presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

     "Bianco" offers an immersive experience that showcases exceptional skills taking place above, behind and all around a standing audience. Internationally renowned for its dramatic live contemporary circus performance, blending jaw-dropping skills with untamed elegance and a subversive edge, "Bianco" was created by the artistic director Firenza Guidi. With a constantly evolving narrative set to a pounding soundtrack performed by a live band, the show provides an impressive and stunning theatrical experience, especially when the audience can feel the whoosh of air as a trapeze artist swings directly above their heads. "Bianco" achieved a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013. In 2014 and 2015, the show travelled to Perth, Australia, and around Europe, and it is touring across the world in 2016.

     "Bianco" will be staged at 8pm from February 17 to 21 (Wednesday to Sunday) and at 2.30pm on February 20 (Saturday) at the Arena of Queen Elizabeth Stadium. Tickets are priced at $380. No audience seating is available.
