As human beings we have come a long way, but it is obvious that we still have so much further to go.

US PREMIERE
SMASHED2
by Gandini Juggling


Theater/Circus, UK


 


The dark art of juggling revisited.


 


9 Performers, 80 Oranges, 7 Watermelons. THIS IS SMASHED2.


 


“Juggling becomes flights of inspired poetry, musical choreography with strong dance elements, crazy-comedy surrealism, breathtakingly dexterous virtuosity, darkly absurdist drama. Gandini opens windows in the mind.” Alastair Macaulay – The New York Times


In Gandini Juggling’s hit SMASHED, which made its US Premiere at PEAK Performances, the manipulation of forbidden fruit shrewdly explored the strained relations between seven men and two women—and kindly flayed traditions of juggling and circus. Smashed2 is the dark art of juggling revisited. Director Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala borrow elements of Pina Bausch’s gestural choreography and combine them with the intricate patterns and cascades of solo and ensemble juggling. Simultaneously evoking great pleasure and small disquiet, SMASHED2 lightly disrupts the rigid conventions of etiquette, dress, gender, and body language. The result is a new hybrid of juggling, performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing.
