4 x 4 EPHEMERAL ARCHITECTURES

Gandini Juggling/ United Kingdom

Formed by world-renowned jugglers Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala, Gandini Juggling is at the vanguard of contemporary circus, reinventing and reinvigorating juggling for the 21st Century.

4 x 4 Ephemeral Architectures
Four jugglers and four ballet dancers share a stage for the first time, tracing pathways in space. Both of these formalized systems are ephemeral journeys through time and space, leaving an unseen trace, describing an imaginary architecture.  4 x 4 Ephemeral Architectures is a celebration of the intersection where these paths meet.

Directed by world renowned juggler Sean Gandini, choreographed by the Royal Ballet’s Ludovic Ondiviela, with original composition, Suspended opus 69, by Nimrod Borenstein.
