In Smashed2, nine jugglers; seven women and two men, bring a touch of freshness and acidity to the Festival with an original creation that can be enjoyed like a fruit salad. Inspired by Pina Bausch's Tanztheatre, Smashed2 is a sensational blend of virtuosity in motion in a succession of scenes. In a blend of juggling, dance and fruits, the artists of Gandini Juggling will challenge your perception of contemporary juggling.

« Smashed2 explore les thèmes de la tentation, du conflit, de l'amour perdu et de revanche. On ne peut s'empêcher de rire, surtout quand ce sont les hommes qui payent les pots cassés. »

About Gandini 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 20 performers for specially commissioned events and performances. Ferociously prolific, they are constantly creating new works, which range from radical art/juggling fusions to accessible theatrical performances, from choreographic studies to commercially commissioned routines.
