“Together we go further”, that’s what we learned thanks to the company XY last time they came to La Villette with Il n’est pas encore minuit (It’s Not Yet Midnight). For this new creation, the circus company teamed up with Rachid Ouramdane, a first in the history of their collective. 

With Möbius, they embrace the beyond, trying to explore the boundaries of acrobatics towards something greater than themselves - to consider the bigger picture. Following the example of hundreds of starlings flying together in an extraordinary aerial ballet, the nineteen acrobats draw their movements in a fascinating continuity. Their invisible communication authorises inversions, turnings, shifts in the situation. Thus they create a territory forged with thick and perfectly orchestrated bonds, a real ode to life. 

“That which elevates us – by force of acrobatic lifts – is where we have established our test site. What comes to light, as we raise each other up with acrobatic lifts, is that we are always anchored in this fertile territory which is acrobatics.”
