Physical Theater

IL N’EST PAS ENCORE MINUIT

Sponsored by: Sherman Capital Markets, LLC

Venue: Memminger Auditorium

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes

Overview

Returning to Charleston after their triumphant Festival debut in 2013 (Le Grand C ), Compagnie XY brings a new piece of French circus—this time, a metaphor for the ways in which humanity faces instability and imbalance. In Il n’est pas encore minuit, skillful bodies in motion evoke aspects of the human experience: the inevitable fall, the state of weightlessness, the euphoria of uplift. This troupe has defined and refined the rhythm and style that now shapes the aesthetic of their physical theater, drawing meaning and beauty as well as gasps and wonder as they catapult each other and stack one another four people high. Compagnie XY’s extraordinary feats and continuous surprise create an edge-of-your-seat experience for audiences of all ages.
