Il n'est pas encore minuit

With a festive atmosphere of freedom and resistance, 'Il N'est Pas Encore Minuit...' is a bubbling cauldron of individual wishes and desires, but in this case, it is more about the notion of the paths we take collectively than the shaping of an idea. Outside acrobatic work, a dance called the Lindy Hop was the point of convergence between individuals and generations. This dance, which grew out of 1920s Harlem and has a swing-like energy, constitutes an incredible playground which, in contrast to acrobatics, allows us to 'let go' and affirm our own uniqueness. And although it may not be the point of the show, its intentions are implicit: the affirmation of the collective and the listening to and understanding of the body as a joyful and poetic act of resistance. Our musical composition follows this theme with the aim of provoking movement as well as immobility; contrasting the energy of a rolling jazz made up of scraps of different things with the melancholy of the cello. The rhythmics will be in tune with the acrobatic figures and their breathing.

XY

Artistic direction: Abdeliazide Senhadji et Mahmoud Louertani

Creation: 2004


The Compagnie XY was born in 2004 out of an encounter between two circus artists, Abdeliazide Senhadji and Mahmoud Louertani, with their duo of students at the circus school in Lomme. ‘XY’, just as with any company, was not meant to last after the show 'Laissez-Porter', which was created in 2005. Four years and some 200 performances later, Abdel suggested bringing together a collective of acrobats on the stage, in the ring or on the road to play out the language of ‘stunts’ practised by many. In May 2009, 'Le grand C' and its 17 acrobats gave their first performance and, contrary to all expectations, the Cie XY forged an identity for itself. 'Le grand C' has been performed over 300 times around the world. 'Il n'est pas encore minuit (...)' was built on these strengths; artistic research around acrobatic stunts and work in large groups, the invention of a common language. A collective approach with a definite concept of encounter, openness and sharing.

Parcours

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
