'Juggling: not just artful but art'
'With Smashed Gandini Juggling have concluded twenty years of experimentation with an increasingly nuanced and complex theatricality'
'Funny, beautiful, clever and affecting'
Another chance to see the big hit of last year’s Festival. Smashed is a sensational mix of skill and theatricality inspired by the work of seminal German dance-theatre maker, Pina Bausch.
Nine extraordinary performers, eighty apples and crockery galore combine in a series of nostalgic filmic scenes, hinting at conflict and tense relationships, lost love and the quaintness of afternoon tea.
Sold-out at LIMF 2012, Smashed returns after extensive international touring.
Three performances only
