Suitable for all
Gandini Juggling has teamed up with breakout stars Chris Patfield and Jose Triguero to co-produce Gibbon, a surreal and charming feast of juggling choreography with a sense of humor and a hint of absurdity.
Exploring the connections between human behaviours Gibbon is an absorbing and entertaining piece achieved through a powerful combination of technical skill and performance chemistry. Achieving success while masking failure, the narrative is formed when the action cuts between the creation and the execution of hypnotic patterns and juggling movement sequences.
Gibbon takes inspiration from the world of dance, innovating choreographically and conceptually, mixing different art forms with juggling and exploring ideas through movement and devised theatre to create a surreal and touching atmosphere. Patfield and Triguero capture the tension of gravity defiance, combining the inevitable speed of an object falling with the slow movement of intertwined arms and hands.
