Smashed – Special Edition at the Peacock Theatre
Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, London, WC2A 2HT
Gandini Juggling’s cult-hit show Smashed comes to the Peacock Theatre.
The forbidden fruit gets its comeuppance in Gandini Juggling’s show Smashed.
In this special edition, created for the 40th anniversary of the London International Mime Festival, 17 performers challenge all preconceptions of juggling as they disrupt the carefully created constellations of flying fruit, and instead celebrate the ‘drop’ as the apples come tumbling down, and with them, the rigid conventions of etiquette, dress and body language.
Inspired by the work of Pina Bausch, this funny and thrilling work explores conflict, tense relationships, lost love, and afternoon tea on an even grander scale than the original.
Smashed – Special Edition will run from 9 January 2017 until 10 January 2017 at the Peacock Theatre.
