Gandini Juggling

Gandini Juggling are founded, and over the next twenty five years will be tireless travellers and collaborators, touring the world. They choreograph intricate passing patterns to the music of barcodes, soak one another in paint as they pay tribute to fashion designer Alexander McQueen, make work inspired by Pina Bausch (Smashed, pictured) Merce Cunningham and Steve Reich, and juggle balls, clubs, baguettes, CDs, apples, oranges, maltesers, inflatable chairs, stuffed animals, and, once, a Pygmy pig. In 2012 they celebrated their 20th anniversary with the show twenty/twenty, a piece that meditates on the intersection of art and science in human endeavour by choreographing no less than twenty performers. They have since created 8 Songs, Water on Mars (with Plastic Boom) and 4 x 4 Ephemeral Architectures
