April 03, 2013, 11:40 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Having last enthralled audiences at the Roundhouse in 2009 with the groundbreaking ‘Tabu', the Nofit State Circus is set to return to the Camden venue this April with a brand new show. Entitled ‘Bianco', this boundary-busting show turns the conventions of circus entertainment on their head to create an immersive sensory experience that is beyond imagination.
Freed from the confines of the circus ring, the action takes place above, behind, and all around a standing audience, combining traditional and contemporary circus, dance, and truly stunning stage design. Under the genius direction of Firenza Guidi, the jaw-dropping skills of the performers form part of a constantly evolving narrative that is soundtracked by a pulsating live band performance.
In the Roundhouse, the Nofit State Circus may just have found the perfect venue for their own unique brand of avant-garde circus entertainment. Originally built as a steam engine repair shed in the Victorian era, this Grade II listed building was converted into a performing arts venue in the 1960s. In the years that followed, it hosted a number of now-legendary events such as the International Times launch party in 1966, the only UK appearance by the Doors in 1968, and the Greasy Truckers Party in 1972 with Hawkwind and Brinsley Schwarz.
After falling out of use in the 80s, it was reopened in the 90s and given an extensive refurbishment in the 2000s, and has since hosted major events such as the BBC Electric Proms and the iTunes festival.
Of the London hotels offering discounts to those booking through LondonTown.com, the Holiday Inn Camden Lock Hotel is without a doubt the closest, being just a few hundred yards from the venue. This modern hotel looks out onto the Regents' Canal, just a stone's throw from the madness and excitement of Camden Market and the surrounding nightlife, and a short stroll to Camden Town tube station.
For those who seek something a little more sedate, the Marriott Hotel Regents Park offers marble bathrooms and large rooms in the serene and leafy Swiss Cottage area, just 15 minutes from the venue. The hotel can boast its own restaurant and café bar, as well as a leisure club with an indoor swimming pool, and is very near to London Zoo and the sophisticated bars of Primrose Hill.
These discounted rates are available exclusively from the LondonTown website, an online guide which provides a wealth of information about hotels, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and much more, as well as offering a range of special deals. http://www.LondonTown.com
