Smashed - You are cordially invited to a tea party that you will never forget…
A mesmerising mix of circus and theatre inspired by the work of Pina Bausch, Smashed is a series of nostalgic filmic scenes exploring conflict, lost love, and quaint afternoon tea. Composed of tableaux vivants that give a sense of old photographs, echoing world wars, tense relationships, lost love and innocence, nostalgia, and the quaintness of afternoon tea, this Bauschian Tanzjonglage performance culminates with a cathartic smashing of apples and breaking of crockery.
Provocative, witty, jubilatory and astonishing to see. Welcome to the dark art of juggling!
Formed in 1992 by world-renowned jugglers Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala, Gandini Juggling continues to be at the vanguard of contemporary circus, reinventing and reinvigorating juggling for the 21st Century. Gandini Juggling celebrates juggling in all its facets, exploring not just what juggling is, but what juggling can be. Currently an ever-evolving ensemble made up of a virtuosic core group of jugglers, they regularly expand to include up to twenty performers for specially commissioned events and performances. Gandini Juggling is based in London and for its performances invites talented jugglers from all over the world. In addition to performing, Gandini Juggling are very much in demand at leading circus schools, where they teach workshops, create performances, and support the next generation of circus artists. Alongside all this, the company publish their own books and DVDs, continuing to support the wider understanding of the beautiful possibilities of juggling, for jugglers and non-jugglers alike.
