Gandini Juggling’s beautiful new show explores the creative interface between juggling, geometry and classical Indian dance.
Performed by a virtuosic cast including the award-winning choreographer Seeta Patel, Sigma showcases exuberant rhythms, patterns and colours, at the heart of which is a unique interpretation of the South Indian dance form, Bharatanatyam.
With its dazzling quartet of female artists, seductive percussion score and sumptuous backdrop of multimedia projections, Sigma is a finely crafted work designed to engage in a dialogue with the viewer, transcending cultural barriers and stimulating imaginations.
Following its success at recent editions of the Mime Festival and extensive international touring with 4x4:Ephemeral Architectures and Smashed, Gandini Juggling continues to excite and entertain in this latest cross-artform collaboration, winner of an Asian Arts Award and Total Theatre Award at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
"It looks, and is, exquisitely beautiful"
"Astonishing skills in a clever and engrossing piece"
"A truly artful mash-up of distinct skills"
