About the show

St. Ann's Warehouse presents the U.S. premiere of NoFit State Circus' immersive spectacle for all ages. More…

Enter the alluring spaceship tent and take in the intoxicating landscape of extraordinary aerial spectacles above, behind, and all around you, accompanied by a live rock band. 'Bianco' is a promenade-style movable feast. You will be on your feet throughout the show and shepherded by stewards during the performance. Dress casually, leave backpacks and large bags at home, and come join the party.

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful

See it if You enjoy Circue de Soliel but this is more quirky and with so much more heart! The tent was filled with joy!

Don't see it if You can't stand for two hours.

77
Entertaining, Great staging, Disappointing

See it if you enjoy extreme gymnastics. The artists are very talented and able to do physical things that are exciting to watch with grace.

Don't see it if you expect traditional circus. No spandex or sequins often more gymnastic then performance. In addition you have to stand for most of it.

85
Absorbing, Edgy, Intense, Riveting

See it if you want to see an edgier, hipper Cirque du Soleil. Skip Paramour. Bianco is where the real circus is.

Don't see it if you're opposed to standing for 2hrs. and moving around with a herd of people.

84
Entertaining, Original, Great staging, Edgy, Acrobatic

See it if A Brooklyn hipsterish, grittier version of Cirque du Soleil. Incredible acrobats perform up close, with attitude, charm and unique props.

Don't see it if You need to sit; this is on your feet for 2 hours, being moved around by guides (although some people in the front just sat on the floor).

80
Absorbing, Entertaining, Original, Dizzying, Refreshing

See it if You like Cirque du Soliel, want to be in the middle of the action, enjoy aerial acts or you want to be under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Don't see it if You have asthma (seriously it's dusty) or if you can't stand for 2 hours. It's in a "big tent" so it's outside over dirt (mats placed down)

95
Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing, Must see, Masterful

See it if you want to see a great aerial show. This is not a show for acting. This is for your visual stimulation. The music is also live and is great

Don't see it if you don't like the circus and cirque type shows. If you didn't enjoy this show, then seek help. It's a great show, everyone is so talented.

49
Confusing, Slow, Insipid, Indulgent, Fluffy

See it if you live one block from there because its not worth the trip.

Don't see it if you have to cross the bridge or take the subway. If it takes you more than 10 minutes to get there avoid.

Also Sometimes productions copy so much from other productions, that they l... Read more Read less

Delightful, Enchanting, Edgy, Refreshing

See it if you are a fan of other like minded shows such as Fuerza Bruta, or are in need for something entirely different from the usual.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of shows such as Fuerza Bruta, or would rather not stand for two hours.

75
Entertaining, Quirky, Great staging, Edgy, Funny

See it if you like cirque du soleil type shows. you don't mind standing as moving at times to accommodate show settings. good family show

Don't see it if you cannot stand for at least 2hr

61
Repetitive, Cool setting, Athletic, Monotonous

See it if You LOVE aerials acts. Because the whole thing is aerial acts one after the other, again and again.

Don't see it if You're expecting a traditional circus or variety show. This is folksier and almost purely aerial.

77
Edgy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you like aerial acts, want something less polished than Cirque du Soleil -

Don't see it if you can't stand for 2 hours, acts are repetitive with not enough difference to keep interest

78
Ambitious, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if Modern flare to a day at the circus without the animals. A touch of performance art meets high flying acts. Performers are also stage hands.

Don't see it if Standing only no seats.

80
Clever, Absorbing, Enchanting, Dizzying, Refreshing

See it if u want the younger, rowdier sibling of Cirque du Soleil. Mostly aerial acts. Wonderfully transparent staging: rigs, pulleys & counterweights

Don't see it if standing for 2 hours on hard surface; lack of polish/mysticism of CdS; sharp tonal shifts & wildly eclectic house band are not your thing.

75
Absorbing, Entertaining, Beautiful, Masterful, Great staging

See it if you like immersive theatre, you like spectacle, you want to be amazed at the capabilities and beauty of the human body

Don't see it if you're not ready to stand for 2 hours and constantly look up at aerial acts, you want traditional theatre with a story

80
Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you're a fan of aerial acts & don't mind standing for 2 hours & waiting as they set up for next act. Great live music and lead singer

Don't see it if you can't stand for 2 hours and aren't able to move around quickly. Don't understand the standing part - seats would have added to my score

80
Exquisite, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Masterful

See it if Really enjoyed this circus show. It's more on the aerial side. The performers are international and sexy.

Don't see it if You mind standing for 2 hours

82
Great staging, Edgy, Physical, Entertaining, Exciting

See it if you want to see a more raw circus experience. Striking visuals with cool aerial acts.

Don't see it if you can't stand up for a couple hours. And if you aren't fast on your feet, ready to move at a moment's notice.

90
Must see, Slow, Refreshing, Romantic, Great staging

See it if you like circus and great spot for it. Great team and music. Loooong dress just amazing. See it!

Don't see it if you're too lazy to stand during the show

88
Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining, Edgy, Masterful

See it if You want to feel like a kid again. The circus is in town and it doesn't get any cooler and sexier than this!

Don't see it if You don't like standing or if you need your personal space. This is as close as it gets to being in the middle of a three ring circus.

71
Entertaining, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if You enjoy aerial performances. You like a lower version of Cirque du soleil. Beautiful Staging

Don't see it if You looking for a story, There is no story. It's a circus.

95
Ambitious, Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful, Must see

See it if You love excitement, sexy acrobats and a killer live band!

Don't see it if Are afriad of heights or standing for 2 hours. If you don't like Fuerza Bruta style theater.

65
Entertaining, Athletic, Beautiful, Uneven, Virtuosic

See it if you enjoy watching beautiful bodies perform astonishing feats. The comic bits mostly fall flat, but the aerial work is first rate.

Don't see it if you can't stand for two hours or you don't want to put up with being jostled and corralled from time to time.

82
Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Exciting, Impressive

See it if you like acrobatics. Great for families and all ages.

Don't see it if you don't like standing.

50
Entertaining, Excruciating, Disappointing, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if You enjoy trapeze and aerial acts and nothing more. There's no variety. Mid 2nd act felt like I had seen the acts before...and then again.

Don't see it if Can't stand up on your feet for 2 hours straight. Looking to see a traditional circus or anything like Cirque Du Soleil.

69
Funny, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy seeing acrobatic shows.

Don't see it if You can't stand and move around during the show or you can't lift your head up for prolonged period, the actions are always up in the air.

"Though there’s some snazzy stuff with trampolines and visual coups de théâtre, 'Bianco’s' most striking moments utilize little more than strands of rope and the performers’ physical prowess. 'Bianco' wants to be both iconoclastic and flashy but isn’t quite either. The appeal of this big-top show...

"If hunky dudes in skimpy clothing are your bag, check out NoFit State Circus’ 'Bianco'—at times the show feels like 'Magic Mike' under a big top. There are women in the cast, too, and they’re as fit as you’d expect...The effect is even more striking, since 'Bianco' is mostly aerial and the stunt...
