Award-winning contemporary circus company Gandini Juggling celebrates its 30th anniversary with this special production.
Co-founder/directors Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala invite us to enter the joyous, complex world of juggling and choreography with this eye-opening user guide to their performance. It’s an animated self-portrait of a pioneering duo and their company, with a repertoire of some thirty productions staged more than six thousand times all over the world.
Like all their work The Games We Play is a celebratory exploration that asks what is juggling and what can it be? And what is art and what can art be? You’ll be dazzled and delighted as they answer these and other questions in inimitable, gravity-defying style.
The performance will be followed by a 30 min artist talk, and we invite all of our audience to join!
About the company
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.
Since their inception the Gandinis have performed over 6,000 shows in 50 countries. They continue to perform at many of the most prestigious festivals and venues throughout the world. These venues range from Contemporary art museums in France to Opera houses in Germany, from theatres in Lebanon to tents in Argentina. Closer to home the Gandinis can be seen performing at the UK’s major outdoor festivals and theatre houses including London’s Royal Opera House, English National Opera, The Royal National Theatre and Sadler’s Wells.
