Smashed: Special Edition - T1337323302The forbidden fruit gets its comeuppance in Gandini Juggling's cult-hit show Smashed. In this special edition, created for the 40th anniversary of the London International Mime Festival, 17 performers challenge all preconceptions of juggling as they disrupt the carefully created constellations of flying fruit, and instead celebrate the ?drop' as the apples come tumbling down, and with them, the rigid conventions of etiquette, dress and body language. Inspired by the work of Pina Bausch, this funny and thrilling work explores conflict, tense relationships, lost love, and afternoon tea on an even grander scale than the original.

Meta - T0489728039A show about making shows. A reflection on entertainment. In the 90's the Gandinis made a series of experimental pieces with Choreographer Gill Clarke that were performed at Jacksons Lane. For this commission they revisit those pieces with a show which is about itself, an elliptical reflexion on their journey through entertainment. There will be complex juggling, text, ballet dancing, hammers, nudity, tables and a comedy sketch. Gandini are bursting with concepts and commentary about form, style and substance. They are excited about this dissection of things, about dwelling deeper into the anatomy of a show. Back at Jacksons Lane as part of the 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. With 6 jugglers and 3 dancers.
