Gandini Juggling (UK): SMASHED

2800 HUF / Student: 2200 HUF
Contemporary Circus Pass is valid
4 crockery sets, 9 jugglers, 80 apples. Funny and inventive, Smashed is a sensational mix of skills and theatricality with a soundtrack featuring music from Tammy Wynette to Music Hall and Bach. Inspired by the great choreographer Pina Bausch, a series of nostalgic filmic scenes explore conflict, tense relationships, lost love and quaint afternoon tea in a deliciously mesmerising fusion of choreography, circus and theatre. Gradually, the mood becomes increasingly prickly and all the crockery bites the dust.
Performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing by a company who have been at the forefront of contemporary circus for more than 20 years.
★★★★ 'An arresting piece of theatre. Pure pleasure. (Time Out)
★★★★ 'A unique mix of juggling, clowning, dance and storytelling.' (What's On Stage)
★★★★ 'A performance of such breathtaking ease and intimacy'. (The Stage)
