Compagnie XY

Artistic direction: Abdeliazide Senhadji et Mahmoud Louertani

Creation: 2004

For 17 years, Cie XY has been investigating and exploring the language of acrobatics through the practice of lifts. While relying on the fundamentals of this circus technique, this collective of artistes keep playing with the codes, rhythms and forms of acrobatics to put them back at the very heart of the artistic gesture.

Since then, the company has chosen to work in large numbers in order to multiply possibilities and to enlarge its field of research. This choice also reflects an artistic approach that aims to question the concepts of mass, of the “audience” and their interactions in the same space-time. Beyond that, it remains a matter of questioning the relationship of an individual to a group or within a given social setting.

Through this approach, Cie XY has also chosen to be a true collective, sharing the expertise and ideas of each individual and by adopting a collegial creative process. This constant desire to be part of a process of transmission and sharing in a non-hierarchical framework, has a strong impact on daily work and becomes a direct component of the artistic forms that are produced. In this spirit, the team has chosen to turn towards the public through the collective creation of large-scale forms for the theatre, public spaces or any places that allow frontal or circular performances.
