After winning over the Montréal audience with Smashed (2013) and 4x4 Ephemeral architectures (2016), the refined artists of Gandini Juggling return to the Festival!

The show, in collaboration with superlative choreographer Alexander Whitley, is the eagerly anticipated final part of a trilogy of dialogues between sophisticated juggling and dance languages. A joyous celebration where juggling and contemporary dance unite, brilliantly mixes danced movements, sharp and precise, to balls and rings. Spring, a highly refined artful experience, is a succession of impressions completed by deconstructed beats and clever lighting which accentuate the virtuosity of the performers.

In a fascinating exploration of colour, the stage is at times flooded in red, yellow or blue, and the rings change colour like magic, to the audience’s enjoyment. It’s graceful, intelligent—and there’s no shortage of the English people’s typical offbeat humour.

Beautiful!

"Gandini Juggling and Alexander Whitley’s collaboration is full of simple pleasures and intricate skill."

- The Guardian

"Spring is a total theatre, where the artforms of dance, juggling, light design, and music weave and bob their way in and out of each other."
