Gandini Juggling have teamed up with emerging artists Patfield & Triguero to co-produce Gibbon.
Premiere 2018
A poetic celebration of self-awareness and human behaviour, with a sense of humour and a hint of absurdity.

Deconstructing the notion of masculinity in a dialogue with the viewer, Gibbon aims to innovate, choreographically and conceptually, by mixing different art forms with juggling, exploring the ideas through a subconscious and visceral approach and using movement and devised theatre tools to create a surreal and touching atmosphere.

The piece will continue Gandini Juggling tradition of producing magical blends of skill with spectacle and invite audiences of all ages into the fascinated world of choreographed juggling.

"Choreographed and performed by Chris Patfield and Jose Triguero, Gibbon was an appealing, surreal mix of physical theatre and comedy juggling. Focusing on competition, self-awareness and achieving success while masking failure, this was an absorbing and entertaining work achieved through a powerful combination of technical skill and performance chemistry".  Resolution, 2018.
