4×4 Ephemeral Architectures (Gandini Juggling)

By | Published on Monday 31 August 2015


Symmetrically perfect, meeting all needs for systems, balance, order, and beauty, ‘4×4 Ephemeral Architectures’ is mesmerising and almost trance inducing. Playing with our love for juggling, and patterns, the piece showcases the skills of four ballet performers and four jugglers, making this piece both beautiful and elegant, whilst simultaneously cheeky. The original composition by Nimrod Borenstein panders to all the needs of the choreography, and makes for a brilliantly visually satisfying performance, only breaking the patterns and symmetry for comedic effect. They will teach you the mathematics of juggling, and then perform it before your eyes. Maths has never been so well loved.

Assembly George Square Theatre, until 30 Aug.
