presented by Gandini Juggling 


We are delighted to welcome back Gandini Juggling after their successful appearance at Freedom Festival in 2018 with this new incarnation of their show Smashed.

This year we bring you Smashed2. 80 oranges, 7 watermelons, 9 performers.

Smashed2 is a witty look at the strained relations between men and women.

It is juggling reinvented, using plenty of explosive fruit and slow-motion comedy...

Inspired by the work of the great choreographer, Pina Bausch, Gandini Juggling combines elements of her gestural choreography with intricate patterns and cascades of solo and ensemble juggling. 

The result is a new hybrid of juggling, in a dance theatre style, performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing.

‘At the forefront of British circus’ quiet revolution' The Guardian 

'Gandini Juggling are not just leaders in their field but trail blazers who have reinvented the relationship between contemporary theatre, dance and circus’ Lyn Gardner
