no future

The National Centre for Circus Arts presents its FD2 students’ ensemble production no future, directed by Sebastian Belmar.

Through the momentum generated by punk, no future proposes its own perspective of anarchy highlighting the cultural revolution of the of the 70’s where innovative artistic and political expressions were given a fresh injection of energy.

Join us to experience this exciting collaboration between Sebastian and our talented FD2 students.

From the Director:

in 1976 the song anarchy in the uk by the sex pistols was released in london. this event became the starting point of the punk cultural revolution with radical ideas, still present in the socio-political and artistic field.

no future passes through the punk momentum to present a perspective of an anarchic manifesto questioning three main forces: state, religion and capitalism. anarchic identity presents ideals and the practice of an attitude towards the expansion of human liberty revealing individualism and the awareness of the impact of our actions on a collective level. this concept translates into our acrobatic process expressed through a culture of rebellion and insurrection. the rejection of: docile, straight and conformed bodies. we play with the principles of inversion, deformation, curvature, an apparent unbalance where disorder shifts into (new) possible order.

In April 2023 the National Centre for Circus Arts lost is Arts Council England funding. This repsesented a 15% cut in income and has had a huge effect on the work we deliver. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue to train the next generation of performers, improve access for those less able to participate, and provide support for professional circus artists in the UK.
