GANDINI JUGGLING: '4x4 Ephemeral Architectures'

Tracing pathways in space, four jugglers and four ballet dancers share a stage for the first time. Both these formalized systems are ephemeral journeys that take the public through time and space, leaving an unseen trace, like an imaginary architecture. 4 x 4 is a celebration of where these paths meet.

Following the international success of Smashed, Gandini premiered his new show at the 2015 London International Mime Festival held at the Royal Opera House, where it received rave reviews. Directed by world renowned juggler Sean Gandini, choreographed by Royal Ballet dancer Ludovic Ondiviela, with original composition Suspended opus 69 by Nimrod Borenstein and performed live by exceptional Particella Quintet, 4x4 is a sensational cross-art form experience.
