Gandini Juggling


This is a past event which has now ended.

80 oranges, 7 watermelons, 9 performers.

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 and takes a witty look at the strained relations between men and women.

Inspired by the work of the great choreographer, Pina Bausch, Smashed2 is juggling reinvented, using plenty of explosive fruit and slow-motion comedy combining elements of gestural choreography,  intricate patterns and cascades of solo and ensemble juggling.

The result is a funny, inventive and characterful work showcasing Gandini Juggling’s masterful stagecraft performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
