Circus Cirucs 

Though we saw several great shows as part of the Edinbugh Fringe Festival, the highlight of the lot for me has to have been NoFit State's gothic circus, ImMortal. The show, dominated by dark, otherworldly tone set by live musicians, thickly accented hosts and black costuming, featured expert acrobatics and rope work. Most striking was the intermingling of audience and performers with nearly complete dissolution of a proscenium. Costumed ushers, fully integrated into the show, maintained necessary zones of safety that shifted with each act, but that allowed maximum interaction between audience and performance. If you're in Wales, or their in your home town, check these folks out.
