Möbius in May

11 May - 19 May


Möbius in May is an exploration of the outer confines of acrobatics, inspired by the phenomenon of murmuration. In nature, this ‘choreography’ of hundreds of starlings in flight is so well-timed and so dense that it sometimes eclipses the sun – even if just for an instant.

In channelling the movements of birds, the members of Compagnie XY place the circus act in a continuum of movement, a chain reaction in which individuals can reverse, upset, and swing about without having to disrupt or oppose one another. Their simple stage presents an infinite space that electrifyingly empties and fills – a responsive and sensorial territory where neither nature, culture, body, nor spirit needs to be opposed.

Möbius in May is an extract from Compagnie XY’s fifth production Möbius, created in collaboration with choreographer Rachid Ouramdane.
