X&Y goes public!

September 16, 2013

Come and explore the shape of the universe with X&Y.


After an exciting period of development at the Science Museum in the spring, X&Y is going live to the public. Tickets are currently on sale for a run of shows at the Science Museum in London 10-16 October


followed by shows at MOSI as part of the Manchester Science Festival.


There will be post-show talks with Marcus du Sautoy and Victoria Gould at the evening shows on Sunday 13 and Tuesday 15 October.


Following a four week research and development period, the Science Museum and Complicite are presenting a work-in-progress performance of their new co-production with Twin Primes Theatre in the IMAX Theatre at the Science Museum on Friday 15 March 2013.

In this new show, Marcus du Sautoy and Victoria Gould use maths and the theatre to explore the known and unknown reaches of our universe. Design is by Lucy Osborne.  

The performance begins at 18.30 and is by invitation – if you would like to attend please email email@complicite.org for more info. 

What is the shape of the universe? Is it finite or infinite? Does it have an edge?

In their new show x & y Marcus du Sautoy and Victoria Gould use mathematics and the theatre to navigate the known and unknown reaches of our world.

Through a series of surreal episodes, x and y, trapped in a world they don’t understand and confronted for the first time with another human being, tackle some of the biggest philosophical and scientific questions on the books: where did the universe come from, does time have an end, is there something on the other side, do we have free will, can we ever prove anything about our universe for sure or is there always room for another surprise?

You can find x & y in the Literary Salon at Latitude Festival, Saturday 14 June at 5.45pm
