Tracing pathways in space, four jugglers and four ballet dancers share a stage for the first time. 4 x 4 is a collaboration between two worlds: ballet and juggling.
Both these formalised systems are ephemeral journeys through time and space, leaving an unseen trace, like an imaginary architecture. Following the international success of Smashed, the sensational Gandini Juggling is returning to its love affair with pure patterns and mathematics.
Directed by world renowned juggler Sean Gandini, choreographed by Royal Ballet dancer Ludovic Ondiviela, with original composition Suspended opus 69 by Nimrod Borenstein and performed live by exceptional young chamber ensemble Camerata Alma Viva. Incredible lighting design by Guy Hoare completes this sensational cross art-form experience.
