Presented By Compagnie XY

Les Voyages

30 June 2019

Duration: 60 minutes

Type: Circus, Theatre

This “one of a kind” occasion thoughtfully reinvents the idea of the circus coming to town. Over several days the people of The Moorings have welcomed the acclaimed French Circus Compagnie XY to Thamesmead, sharing their stories and inviting this extraordinary group of acrobats into their community. For one very special afternoon GDIF audiences are invited to share in this uplifting process, which combines elements of flashmob and street party, offering a chance to get up close, as the magic of circus meets the hopes and dreams of a community.

About the show

Based in France, Compagnie XY are a leading circus company whose exhilarating work has been presented in many countries. Working as a collective, this group of around 20 acrobats explore the relationship between artistic practices and public space, experimenting with performance beyond the confines of theatre. Compagnie XY aim to find out how the language of acrobatics can infiltrate and reflect public spaces and play with the physical constraints to show places that we once thought were familiar in a different light.
