Gandini Juggling present Smashed2.

80 oranges, 7 watermelons, 9 performers. The Dark Art of juggling reinvented. In Smashed2, the manipulation of the forbidden fruit takes a sagacious look at the strained relations between seven men and two women, using juggling and contemporary circus.

Simultaneously evoking great pleasure and small disquiet, Smashed lightly disrupts the rigid conventions of etiquette, dress and body language. The result is a new hybrid of juggling which is performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing. This funny, inventive and characterful work is akin to dance
theatre and will challenge your perception of contemporary juggling.

Trigger warning: The show contains a slow motion fight scene, smashing of fruit and a loud stage combat scene.
