QUALITY and excellence go hand in hand when watching Gandini Juggling, so expect to be suitably impressed by the company’s latest show, Spring - a kaleidoscopic, colourful and virtuosic production which has a preview performance at Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on Saturday, January 20.

Spring is devised by a talented creative team and contemporary choreographer Alexander Whitley (associate of Rambert and New Wave associate at Sadler’s Wells), with eye-popping lighting design from Guy Hoare and original music from urban composer Gabriel Prokofiev.

Performed by a cast of jugglers and dancers, the performance showcases exuberant patterns and colours, at the heart of which is a philosophical reflection on the nature of colour and how we perceive it.

From the company that created Smashed and 4x4: Ephemeral Architectures, Spring follows on from the Gandini’s successful forays in ballet and theatre, delving deeper into their obsession with juggling as pure choreography.

This new large-scale show is a result of their time flirting with various neighbouring art forms, sharing a common core in their rhythms and brining these cousins together to explore the relationships between them.

With the trademark humour that Gandini Juggling bring to all their work, expect to leave this preview performance with plenty to talk about.

*Spring a preview performance will be held on Saturday, January 20 at 7.45pm (followed by a post-show talk). Call the box office for tickets.
