WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
One of the world's most celebrated circus companies, the Gandinis have performed over 4,000 shows in 40 countries over the last decade. Combining dazzling technique with a love of performance and a sense of humour, their unique blend of manipulation, juggling and dance has been applied to all manner of subjects over the years. Whether messing with Mozart, mixing up numbers, dancing as lovers or tripping over tennis rackets, these guys are simply the best.
The iconic Gandinis return with Sigma, celebrating the dialogue between juggling, percussion and dance. The piece showcases exuberant rhythms, patterns and colours, at the heart of which is a unique interpretation of the classical south Indian dance form, Bharatanatyam. Using a mirrored set, this reflective and dynamic show is a cleverly crafted circus and dance production at the heart of which is a mesmerising flirtation between rich and tangible art forms.
