A show about making shows. A reflection on entertainment.
2015
 
In the 90’s Gandini Juggling made a series of experimental pieces with Choreographer Gill Clarke, which were then performed at Jackson’s Lane. For this commission they revisit those pieces with a show that is about itself - an elliptical reflection on their journey through entertainment, bursting with concepts and commentary about form, style and substance, dissecting the art and dwelling deeper into the anatomy of a show.

Featuring 6 jugglers and 3 dancers and returning once again to Jacksons Lane as part of their 40th birthday celebrations, this piece sees Gandini simultaneously looking back to the past, forward to the future, and trying to explain how to get from one to the other.

Complex juggling, text, ballet dancing, hammers, nudity, tables and a comedy sketch; all the ingredients for an entertaining and absurd evening at the theatre.
