        X & Y

X & Y

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, humour and theatre to navigate the known and unknown reaches of our world. Through a series of surreal episodes, X and Y, trapped in a universe 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? Marcus and Victoria met while working on A Disappearing Number, Complicite's multi award-winning play about mathematics. X&Y has developed from that collaboration and pursues many of the questions at the heart of A Disappearing Number. Based on an idea developed with Complicite.

devised by Marcus Du Sautoy, Victoria Gould and Dermot Keaney
