Show Details

Creators of Pina Bausch-inspired international hit Smashed, ‘the kings of juggling’ (Libération) present the eagerly anticipated final part of a trilogy of dialogues between sophisticated juggling and dance languages.


After excursions into ballet with 4x4: Ephemeral Achitectures and bharatanayam dance in Sigma, Gandini Juggling joins forces with Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate, Alexander Whitley, (The Royal Ballet, BalletBoyz, Rambert, Birmingham Royal Ballet) to take object manipulation and contemporary dance into new territories.

 

Featuring five jugglers and four dancers, with special guest appearance from juggling wonderkid Wes Peden, Spring explores the nature of colour in a kaleidoscope of deconstructed rythmns and patterns. It’s spectacular, fun, funky, complex and performed to an original, ‘baroque meets techno’ score by leading London composer, Gabriel Prokofiev, with lighting by multi-award winning designer, Guy Hoare.

 

Spring will be Gandini Juggling’s debut main stage production at Sadler’s Wells.

Sadler's Wells is the UK's leading dance house, uniquely dedicated to bringing the very best international and UK dance to London audiences. We are committed to producing, commissioning and presenting works of the highest standards, crossing the boundaries between different art forms.

We believe dance is the art form of the moment. No other form has the potential to reach so many people, crossing cultural boundaries and appealing to diverse audiences. From contemporary dance to tango, hip hop to flamenco, tap to kathak, choreographers are reinventing dance and undertaking bold collaborations with visual artists and musicians. Sadler's Wells is playing a leading role in making this happen through the commissioning of new work. In the past five years we have commissioned and co-produced almost 70 productions.
