This is Smashed. But not the one you know.
In Smashed, the manipulation of the forbidden fruit took a sagacious look at the strained relations between seven men and two women, kindly flaying traditional juggling and contemporary circus.
Smashed 2 is the dark art of juggling revisited. Turning the tables on one of the most celebrated contemporary circus pieces of the last decade. 7 women and 2 men. This is a tale of retribution. This is the same but different.
Inspired by the work of the great choreographer, Pina Bausch, director Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala have borrowed elements of her gestural choreography and combined them with the intricate patterns and cascades of solo and ensemble juggling.
Simultaneously evoking great pleasure and small disquiet, Smashed 2 lightly disrupts the rigid conventions of etiquette, dress and body language. The result is a new hybrid of juggling which is performed with meticulous unison and split- second timing. This funny, inventive and characterful work is akin to dance theatre and will challenge your perception of contemporary juggling.
Perfomed on street theatre festivals in UK in 2020, also Smashed 2 will be growing to a full stage play within soon and touring worldwide on stage and street.
