In this virtuosic performance from internationally recognised circus ensemble, Gandini, the dexterous manipulation of “forbidden fruit” helps skewer our assumptions about the relations between men and women. This reinvention of a street theatre classic will reverse the original male and female roles, whilst confounding expectations of traditional juggling and circus.
About the company
Formed in 1992 by word renowned jugglers Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä Hokkala, Gandini Juggling continue to be at the forefront of contemporary circus, reinventing and reinvigorating juggling for the 21st century.
Stalker Teatro and Artenaute
Show times: 2-2:45pm | 4:15-5pm
In a new socially-distanced version of a performance last seen at GDIF in 2017, you can play your part in creating a huge structure made out of wooden rainbow coloured sticks. A bridge between contemporary art and performance, Steli is a joyously interactive and highly colourful experience for all the family.
