80 oranges, 7 watermelons, 9 performers.

A witty look at the strained relations between men and women, Smashed2 is juggling reinvented, using plenty of explosive fruit and slow-motion comedy.

Gandini Juggling’s Smashed was one of the most celebrated pieces of street theatre of the last decade. Smashed2 reverses its male and female roles for the very first time.

Inspired by the work of the great choreographer Pina Bausch, Gandini Juggling combine elements of her gestural choreography with intricate patterns and cascades of solo and ensemble juggling.

The result is a new hybrid of juggling, in a dance-theatre style, performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing.

A funny, inventive and characterful performance showcasing Gandini Juggling’s masterful stagecraft.

Directed by Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala.
