• Gandini Juggling: Smashed

    Gandini Juggling, Smashed

    Developed since its outdoor premiere at Watch This Space in 2010 into a full-length piece, Gandini Juggling's Smashed is a wry, elegant and warm tribute to Pina Bausch that takes subversive delight in gradually disrupting the typical English image of afternoon tea. It's been a huge hit in outdoor festivals in the UK and overseas, and there's something about the dance hall style of it that dovetails beautifully with the dry, slightly self-mocking, character of the company. For a better idea of the piece and its origins, see Sideshow's interview with Sean Gandini – but, basically, it's recommended.
