Returning to London for the first time since 2010, French Compagnie XY is widely known as a leading contemporary circus company and are now bringing their new show It’s Not Yet Midnight… to the Roundhouse next April.

With 20 acrobats on stage, It’s Not Yet Midnight… sees the company embracing the fleeting, exhilarating moment of euphoria, the state of weightlessness and then the inevitable fall that is part of the daily life of an acrobat.

By using their unique outlook and approach to acrobatics as well as their skill, It’s Not Yet Midnight… is a show that urges us all to work together and to look out for each other.

Artistic Director at the Roundhouse, Marcus Davey said: “I went to see It’s Not Yet Midnight… in Paris a couple of weeks after the Bataclan tragedy. The city still felt raw and on edge, and tensions were high as we walked into a tent in Parc La Villette. What we saw was a supreme act of resistance, a call to arms and a radical and poetic response to the problems our world is currently facing. With no text and stunning choreography, the company propose a way of working together, of taking responsibility for society and being more than an individual. ” 

Compagnie XY’s It’s Not Midnight… will be performed at the Roundhouse in Camden from the 10th to the 23rd April 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.roundhouse.org.uk/whats-on/2017/compagnie-xy-its-not-yet-midnight/
