Overview

“Alone we go faster; together we go further…”

Returning to London for the first time in seven years, French Compagnie XY bring their spectacular show, It’s Not Yet Midnight… to the Roundhouse for its UK premiere.

Featuring over 20 awe-inspiring acrobats, It’s Not Yet Midnight… is a show about togetherness; a timely reminder that if we come together, accept and look out for one another, we can achieve more.

Blending beautiful choreography with exceptional circus skills and physicality, this show is poignant and humorous, playful and uplifting.

Their hand to hand … their takeoffs, their five-storey human towers, the care with which they ensure the landing of their somersaults describes an ideal world where risk-taking, generosity and solidarity rule the roost
