Smashed2 | West Berkshire Villagers

This event will take place at Welford Park, Newbury.

80 oranges, 7 watermelons, 9 performers.

A witty look at the strained relations between men and women, Smashed2 is juggling reinvented, using plenty of explosive fruit and slow-motion comedy.

Priority booking opens to Members on Thursday 6 May. Tickets are available for general sale on Tuesday 11 May at 10am.

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.

Inspired by the work of the great choreographer Pina Bausch, Gandini Juggling combine elements of her gestural choreography with intricate patterns and cascades of solo and ensemble juggling.

The result is a new hybrid of juggling, in a dance theatre style, performed with meticulous unison and split-second timing.

A funny, inventive and characterful work showcasing Gandini Juggling’s masterful stagecraft.

For £16 (including your show ticket) there is the option to attend a workshop for children after both performances. If you would like to attend, you can book by clicking on the show time you would like to see, and then selecting the workshop that corresponds to that same show time.

Please remember to bring your face covering with you as visitors over the age of 11 are required to wear them on arrival. We will be limiting the number of people admitted to each event to ensure appropriate social distancing between each group and once you have been seated face coverings may be removed.
