Compagnie XY make their Spoleto Festival USA debut with a quintessentially French circus spectacle of heart-stopping stunts, stunning skill, and distinctive style, recalling recent Festival favorites Circa and Traces. With trust as their only safety net, 17 daring acrobats toss, tumble and tower into one human formation after another: first a vertical column of men and women stacked head to toe, next a human catapult that shows what it’s like to fly.

Set to traditional French music, Le Grand C is a portrait of expressive movement, powerful physicality and continuous surprise, a jaw-dropping, edge-of-your-seat experience for audiences of all ages.

Support provided by the French-American Fund for Contemporary Theater, a program of FACE; and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. These performances are made possible in part through funds from the Spoleto Festival USA Endowment generously supported by BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina.
