N o F i t S tat e C i r c u s HOW OLD IS NOFIT SATE? NoFit State has been running since 1986, making us 27 years old. HOW DID NOFITSTATE START? When college finished there were five of us: Dave Williams, Peter Gregory, Richie Turner, Tom Rack and myself, Ali Willams. We shared an interest in juggling and partying, and were quite determined to avoid getting grown up jobs. In those days we had no money and no jobs - but then neither did the rest of Britain. HOW BIG IS THE CIRCUS FAMILY? Curently we have 131 members in the NoFit State family. Our family lives together, works together, eats together, S O W H AT H A P P E N S I N T H E C A R D I F F laughs and cries together â€“ travelling in trucks, trailers HEADQUARTERS? and caravans and living and breathing as one community. This is what creates the spirit that is NoFit State and gives the work its heart and soul. Our base in Cardiff is a hive of circus activity - from weekly courses for beginners and improvers to oneto-one tuition, masterclasses and rehearsal space for HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE NOFIT STATE experienced professionals. Today, NoFit State is the UKâ€™s leading large-scale contemporary circus company, producing professional touring productions and a wide variety of community, training, and education projects for people of all ages. Our circus combines live music, dance, stage design, text, and film with traditional circus skills.

Peaches & Cream
“So my cats name is Pixie and my first street was called Morninton Meadows so that became my name” Never afraid to show off their curvaceous figures, the erotic burlesque trio known as Peaches and Cream bring cheeky smiles and passion to Lab 22, leaving their audience in awe clinging on for another piece of the sensual action. Far from shy and so full of energy, the Peaches part of the group Pixie makes me a deal. I agree to an hour’s session in the gym, in that time I can ask away. Keeping fit is very important to Pixie, because when she isn’t performing with her girls she can be found working hard at Cardiff ’s lap dance club, For Your Eyes Only. “I very rarely get judged for what I do, everyone is always so interested and supportive.” The two of us are chatting about how to get into dancing and finding the confidence to get up on stage when Pixie excitedly launches into her story “I saw this burlesque performer at a tattoo convention in Brighton, I always loved the concept but thought it lacked this sense drama and confidence” she continued simply with “I said to my mum that I’d love to be on stage doing that and her reply was ‘do it then, set up a group’”. As simple as that a Facebook group was formed with 20 eager girls wanting to try something flirty and fun. Many who thought it was a great idea on paper were put off by the reality of what burlesque entails and perhaps didn’t share Pixie’s show girl demeanour to take to the stage. Following this it led to consequently, whittling the group down to the buoyant three,

Pixie Meadows, August Blue and Bryony. “I am the Peaches part, August is the Cream and Bryony is the ‘and’ she’s the glue that keeps us together with the ‘and’ there is no group” When first meeting with Pixie I had always thought the girls’ names were to protect their identity. However I was wrong, as she explains to me where these names came from Pixie still has a doe-eyed, sexy way of talking even of stage. “We chose to have these playful names to give ourselves a mysterious almost cute profile; names that would match our risqué performances. It gives us a more glamorous name to be called, before we perform.” Having this alter ego personality gives the threesome almost like a mask, not to hide behind but to transform into character. “It gives me more confidence when I think of myself being Pixie, I am someone else and I have a lot of fun with that person” Taking the stage with limited amounts of clothing can prove difficult for young girls living in our society. Constantly feeling judged not only by our peers but from the magazines we buy telling us to look and act a certain way. Peaches and Cream are all about selling the message that young women should be embracing their bodies. “What sets us apart from other groups is that we are not ridiculously skinny, each one of us is a different shape and size, and individually we use that within our performance as a group.” Their predominantly female audience gives
the girls a lot of support and looks up to them, always greeted with claps and cheers. “Receiving energy from the crowd gives us plenty of drive to give back more to the audience.” Cardiff- based Peaches and Cream, tour around the city performing in bars and clubs giving them that loyal fan base that any act craves. Following their success local band Johnny Cage and the voodoo groove invited them to perform on stage with the band. This gave them the opportunity to be headlining the Secret Garden Party Festival. “The audience went wild for us and it felt great to be a part of a festival, something slightly different from what we are used to. It was the first time we had performed with a live band before, the buzz drove us to shake and shimmy twice as hard!” Since then the group have performed at events such as Cardiff tattoo convention 2012 providing them with a proud reputation around the city. The future looks colourful for Peaches and Cream with experience behind them and lots more opportunities out there for them. But where does a burlesque group go from here to build a career? Pixie told all on how they would love to set up a burlesque academy or even go to Las Vegas “ We would love to perform around the world in the future we have lots of ambition, but for now we are so happy doing what we are doing, we have so much fun together.” Rightfully so the girls are very proud of what Peaches and Cream have developed in to. They are so grateful for the encouragement they receive and have big plans for the forthcoming.

BURLESQUE Through the Ages This is the journey of Burlesque and how it developed over the years, through the success and downfalls. A timeline that shows the dramatic changes, that still influences us today.
Burlesque comedy skits (which is a term used for comic, d r am at i c s ke tch ) entertained lower and middle class by making fun of operas and basically the class above them including their social characteristics. At this time Burlesque was seen as theatrical entertainment.
This is when curvy, semi clothed women were brought into the mix to keep the audience interested. At this time France created the Can Can and the birth of Moulin Rouge.
Millie DeLeon, a star of Burlesque at this time. She was very cheeky and seductive although t his le d to her being arrested on occasions and contributed in burlesque adopting a raunchy reputation.
Billy Minsky owned the National Winter G a r d e n a Ne w York theatre where Burlesque really began. Billy realised that although Burlesque wasnâ€™t something of class it could be shown in classy surroundings.
This was the era of femme fatale, popularity of Burlesque was suffering; f i l m an d r a d i o was providing the entertainment one desired. In order to deliver, striptease was created to keep things fresh and exciting.

1930 1931 1932 1937 1940 New Yo r k became the home of Burlesque, M i n k s y ’s c h a i n moved onto Broadway which proceeded to take over Times Square and was responsible for the breakdown in the theatres. Becoming increasingly racier and risqué by the year (and probably becoming increasingly more negative especially by the upper class society) it was estimated at 3, 500 U.S strippers performing to over 50,000 people per night.
Laure Henderson opened a small t he at re in S oho, London, named ‘The Windmill’. Imitating the renowned Moulin Rouge in Paris it was full of singers, dancers and showgirls. Business soon exploded and became world famous, it was the only theatre in London that stayed open throughout the war. The showgirls and acts had moved to an underground location. This is where in the famous slogan ‘We Never Closed’ started.
King of Burlesque Billy Minsky died suddenly at the age of fourty-one from Pa g e t’s d i s e a s e . Burlesque would of course carry on but with the unfortunate loss of Minsky it would definitely suffer.
In t h i s ye ar i n New York, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia closed down the Burlesque houses within the city discarding them as promoters of ‘filth’. Over the years Burlesque had changed becoming more ‘sleazy’ rather t han t he c om i c values of how it originated. With this promoters were banned from using Burlesque to market their acts.
Following the close down of Burlesque, Ho l l y w o o d emerged with a new sexy image influenced by Burlesque. it was women in top hats, leotards and fishnet tights with fan dancers and the Can Can. There was still a no nudity r ule on the big screen but within the intimacy of the stage things were still raunchy as ever. Although New York had its crackdown cheeky men’s magazines were still keeping the spirit of Burlesque alive. New dancers appeared with more extravagant costumes including women such as Lili St. Cyr with her onstage bubble bath.
ARCANE Issue 1
Out came the iconic women such as M a r i l y n Mo n r o e this era, with her big blonde hair, ample breast and fertile hips. The start of voluptuous breasts and sexy hips, perfect hour glass figure was happening with the phrase ‘The bigger the chest and hips and the smaller the waists, the better!’ This new look then appeared in Vogue along with the return of the corset, extenuating the small waist, curvy craze. Marilyn Monroe brought to the table the combination of comedy and tease also like the old style Burlesque.
This decade launched the easy a c c e s s i bi l it y of strong erotica that is known as hard core pornography, br i n g i n g s t r ip pers to the end. Strippers were no longer needed with the rise in p or n o g r aphy it made Burlesque look soft. The art of the striptease had lost and became out dated, leaving Burlesque to deteriorate.
Burlesque became a l l but ext inc t, when sex took over it was everywhere and it wasn’t as frowned upon. Although never portrayed in a positive light just like today. Las Vegas kept the glamour of Burlesque going with exotic showg i rls w ho we re topless and sparkly. Back in Paris Moulin Rouge became a massive tourist attraction, which all very well still keeping its success, but unfortunately had lost what magic the real Burlesque has possessed.
After a long time at rest, the new 90’s generation longed for a return of that vintage glamour and spectacle. The see-it-all nature of pornography now b e c o m i n g b o ring with its lack of imagination and mystery the art of tease was resurrected. With her dated look Dita Von Te e s e w a s the new genre’s superstar, bringing Burlesque back.

1996 2001 Present Day D it a Von Te e s e : K n o w n i nt e r n a tionally as a fetish supermodel, Dita was actually born as Heather Renee Sweet. As a child she had trained to be a ballerina but after she has turned fifteen she began working in a linge r i e s tore. He r career started in a local strip club at the age of eighteen; gradually she went from fetish model to finally Burlesque star. She is known for her legendary ‘girl in the glass’ performance where she’s glides around i n a c h amp a g n e filled crystal glass bathtub.
The Moulin Rouge (film): Bringing alive the old classic film Moulin Rouge from 1952, then appeared Nicole Kidman showing what life was like in old time Paris as a Burlesque p e r f o r m e r. B a z Lu h r m an n c ap tured the feel and obscurity of life from back then.
Today Burlesque is very different, as you have seen it changed rapidly throughout the years. But it is a phase that kept lingering in the distance for a very long time. Judging from the path it took to get here you can understand people’s confusion of pornography and Burlesque especially as the todays older generation would have witnessed more of what it once was.

SLAMBOREE THE SLAM IN BOREE
What happens when you take a selection of bands from a selection of genres and throw them together? Slamboree happens, with their eclectic style and long lived friendships what better way for a group of people to ‘gel’. Having recently returned from Slovenia’s event, Bovec Rocks where he learned to snow board and have a paint fight up a mountain, DJ/producer Mike Freear looks exhausted to stay the least. Jersey born Slamboree brainchild however, is still full of excitement to talk about all the thrilling things Slamboree are doing. The ever expanding forty-three piece band started as just a group of mates in Leeds who were supporting each other’s bands. “We decided we wanted to figure a way of gelling it all together as one big festival type band”. With a mix of musicians and performers it didn’t take long for them to develop into their own individual warped synchronicities. Creating new genres along the way, not even Freear can pin point what their exact category is, so we are settling with ‘Gypsy-Balkan Rave’.
ARCANE Issue 1
The band rapidly became larger, in terms literary of quantity. “We are currently a 43 piece band and counting” varying form circus performers, daredevils and entertainers you can see how a Slamboree gig is more like a full blown theatre production. “ We take each show as it comes, assembling a different crew from our collective for each show and every gig is very different to the last. Musically it fuses bass-driven beats with live orchestra, guitars, percussion, loops, visuals, brass, accordian, pyrotechnics and circus”. Each show brings something different to the last, always original and always live. “Within this very first year together we’ve been fortunate enough to perform our live shows at some amazing places such as Glastonbury Festival, Electric Picnic, Boomtown, Shambala, Beatherder, Kendal Calling and the River Thames in London.” Playing anywhere from farmyard bands to underground raves Slamboree want to take on every piece of the world possible. Returning to Boomtown and making their mark over Europe and USA.
Mikes long term plans include bigger, louder, more warped shows, â€œAt Solfest last year Joe our trombonist staged some kind of cardiac arrest whilst a life sized puppet tried to resuscitate him and a fire breather on stilts laughed and created fire balls to celebrate.â€? Hard to imagine what could be bigger than that, or even how they begin to top that.

“Music that unites the freaks of the world” - Sicknote
Playing to angry rugby men, losing a ginger fringe after head butting a wall and being forcefully snogged by an overweight male with a colostomy bag…all in a standard show for a band as outrageous as Sicknote. There is never a dull moment if you are a member of Sicknote. From fighting for what you believe in through the art of music to accidently gluing your false teeth to a cat’s backside. In a world of financial struggle they’re a band with plenty of laughs and plans of world domination. Sicknote formed in Netties fancy dress shop, Cardiff in 2005. Prior to this, members ‘Doghouse’ and ‘Johann Flapsandwich’ had briefly met from a chance meeting at Whitchurch hospital where they spoke about an idea to start a band. Bumping into each other again in the fancy dress shop they developed this idea further to create a musical/ art project by selecting people from the shop to join them on stage. No plans were even made from this point onwards, thrown together they took to the stage at a small
ARCANE Issue 1
local venue the following weekend. They began to express themselves, resulting in the birth of Sicknote and the crazy adventures they were about to embark upon. From this point their lives became a whirlwind of excitement having played sell out shows at The Globe in their hometown they went onto playing every weekend at any venue that would have them. “We have played every weekend for years all over the UK and Europe”, Flapsandwich told us. They started their weekenders in Cardiff in 2005 and even now, with success growing and the venues getting bigger, they are still sticking to performing every weekend. The band reached a high point in 2010 when performing at Glastonbury but in true Sicknote fashion it didn’t go without a
crazy moment. ‘Doghouse’ explained, “Dr Conker collapsed on stage in Glastonbury at 5am and the crowd thought it was part of the show”. All in good spirit, the show must go on and one little hiccup wouldn’t stop their plans of taking over. A political agenda is quite noticeably strong with a band that produces songs titled ‘Death before Employment’ and ‘Benefit Cheat’. They are the kind of people who rejoice in life and try to focus on the positives. ‘The Filth’ added “Our political views are undisclosed at this time, we concentrate on the congregation of people who want to celebrate being alive and we encourage them to do this every weekend with us”. The songs however do make a statement and there is a message being portrayed behind it. ‘Death before Employment’ is an expression of the desire to make a living doing something that one enjoys, which at times is difficult especially when you are just starting out and have a lack of experience in your chosen field. This is about finding the career that suits you that makes you happy rather than working for someone else; being employed. They explained to me how there are a lot of people that are in employment but they hate their jobs, this reality makes the majority of society bitter and why should they have to work when others don’t. “Rekindle that dream you had when you were a kid. You wanted to be an artist, or a musician, or an actor? Stop blaming everyone else just because you are caught up being a wage slave.” ‘Flapsandwich’ expresses himself. They work very hard and they work for themselves which at times does provide any financial gain. But they would rather be happy producing music and doing the
job they have passion for, than live a life feeling bitter and twisted. This five piece band have had many insane moments including ‘Doghouse’ stage diving at TJ, the crowd moved out of the way and he ended up hitting the floor and cutting his wrist on glass. With plenty of stories from the last seven years they are now currently collating a book of the story of Sicknote which at the moment is just a work in progress so a release date is to be announced. What is next for this unpredictable band? Their plans for 2013 are looking exciting; currently in the studio they are hoping to release new material in April. Back on the road from March 22nd with four Welsh dates and then back onto the festival scene by the summer season. Dr Conker said their plans are “World domination…make music that unites the freaks of the world”. For a band that thrives off their individuality they plan to continue to tour the world and make music like no one ever has and start a revolution. Holding onto their dreams of expressing themselves honestly, who knows where the ride that is their lives will take them. Sic to th

F e s t i va l Fa s h i o n With the summer festival season just around the corner we take a look at what cool, niche styles everyone has been wearing and what festival fashion to wear to these unique alternative festivals. All images dontated by the festival goers found on Facebook.
A lot of festival attire that everyone is wearing is gypsy, very fitting with the gypsy Balkan rave genre. It’s a blend of vintage gypsy, bohemian, Middle Eastern, and Moroccan wearable styles. This is comfortable and fitting for both males and females. Sold online and in independent gypsy style shops it’s a style that won’t break the bank.
ARCANE Issue 1
With a mash up of colours it keeps the outfits very bright and summery. Colourful or Aztec patterned waist coats are becoming increasingly popular giving this a throwback 70’s style gypsy fashion. The 60’s, 70’s fashion is making a comeback into the hearts of the gypsy styles fashion world under the term ‘Boho-chic’. This baggy pants and waist coat look can be worn by both men and women.
Hemp materials are used with these kinds of outfits, the people wearing this bohemian fashion are also seemingly into earthly materials and protecting the environment. “One’s fashion style should be a diverse mix of patterns, colours, materials and layers that come together in such a way they are telling a story about YOU”
Both genders like to wear a lot of layered and loose fitting clothing. For women long layered skirts and for men loose fitting poet shirts. A lot of the styles and clothing are worn by both keeping it very versatile and unisex. This summery gypsy festival fashion has something for everyone and itâ€™s all about mixing it up and keeping it bright and colourful and most definitely they look comfortable.

Film Film Socialisme (2011) Like beauty, meaning really is in the eye of the beholder here - just be warned that bringing a dictionary is unlikely to help you get to the bottom of this one. - Sophie Ivan, Film4 Unimaginable tedium. Jean-Luc Godard’s film is allegedly a “symphony in three movements”, though you could call it an epic poem or a haiku and still be none the wiser. - Anthony Quinn, The Independent Those who rush from Jean-Luc Godard’s great days into this “symphony in three movements” will be in for a shock. Perhaps not many will make the transition, since the 79-year-old director has not been producing films like ‘Pierrot Le Fou’ or ‘Le Mépris’ for many years. This latest, and possibly last, venture shows he still retains an extraordinary ability to frame shots, edit and match sounds. But he now seems a film-maker with little new to say and no desire to do anything but repeat himself. The first section of the symphony is set on a Mediterranean cruise where Patti Smith and Alain Badiou are among the holiday-makers, saying elliptical things to each other which non-French speakers will find difficult to understand except through a series of one-word

captions in “Navajo English”. The full text, by the way, is on the internet. It all looks superb but we are not much the wiser about Europe’s cultural and political history, which is apparently the subject-matter. There’s more about Europe in the second section where children question their parents about Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. They don’t get much in the way of answers. Finally we visit six sites where myth predominates: Egypt, Palestine, Odessa, Greece, Naples and Barcelona. Video, digital and internet material are used as if to tell us once again that orthodox story-telling in the cinema is dead. Maybe it is as far as Godard is concerned, but you still regret the absence of it from this undeniably great film-maker. – London Evening Standard

If you are open, even in fancy, to the idea of ghosts who visit the living, this film is likely to be a curious but rather bemusing experience. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Revered French director Alain Resnais, now nearing 90, proves he still has spring in his step with the irrationally provocative romantic comedy Wild Grass. – Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
It takes a while to get used to Joe’s peculiar style of filmmaking, but once you do, you’ll go with the flow, not worrying about the abstractness of the plot. – V.A Musetto, New York Post
Camera movements, graphic matches, and strange tonal balances carry a lot of expressive weight in this story about chance encounters, creepy follow-ups, and abrupt changes of heart. – Nick Davis, Nick’s Flick Picks
As is to be expected, Weerasethakul frequently abandons the story for trancelike contemplations of nature, but never before in his work has the device felt more purposeful. – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader One to absorb, to wonder at, and, perhaps most significantly, to give exposure to lines of thinking that one might not be familiar with. - Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
Director Alain Resnais? roundabout romance about missed connections and misplaced intentions is gorgeous to watch but difficult to track. – Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune Wild Grass is the vision of Alain Resnais. He suggests that anything can happen in movies. Or in our imaginations. - Tony Macklin, tonymacklin.net

Music Sicknote- Health Junkies Part goth and part punk, Healthy Junkies wisely manage to tread a line where they take the best part of each movement for their sound. So we get snotty punk attitude on the likes of “Copycat” and “Glam Sister” and a darker more reflective vibe on “Frozen Fields” and “Sick Kid”. They also have the advantage of a very tight and well-drilled sound as evident on the almost rockabilly rhythms of “Beaten Dog No More” and aren’t afraid to try something different as evidenced on the slowbuilding chaos of closing song “Exile”. – Pure Rawk
Don Broco- Priorities Each song on this album has a distinct but fresh sounding vibe to it. For example, ‘Fancy Dress’ is probably the albums heaviest track with a thunderous riff and vocal patterns to fit. Very different from say, the acoustically driven vibe of ‘Yeah Man’. – Sputnik Music Whether you’ve followed Don Broco from the start or only just hearing their music for the first time, there’s no escaping the fact that frontman Rob Damiani and co can produce a tune which will have you singing along in no time at all. Don’t believe us? Give Fancy Dress a try and you’ll know all the words after a few listens. – Bring the Noise
Kate Nash- Girl Talk It’s a little preachy and confessional, but there’s truth in most of what Nash sings about on Girl Talk, at least for the ladies in the room who are still figuring out how to be capital-A adults. And really, at this point, it’s hard to imagine that isn’t Kate Nash’s main fanbase. – Pitchfork
