Gibbon

Gandini Juggling have teamed up with emerging artists Patfield & Triguero to co-produce Gibbon.
Premiere 2018
A surreal and charming feast of juggling choreography, with a sense of humor and a hint of absurdity.

Achieving success while masking failure, a narrative is formed as the action cuts between the creation and the execution of hypnotic patterns and juggling movement sequences.

An absorbing and entertaining work achieved through a powerful combination of technical skill and performance chemistry.  

"Choreographed and performed by Chris Patfield and Jose Triguero, Gibbon was an appealing, surreal mix of physical theatre and comedy juggling. Focusing on competition, self-awareness and achieving success while masking failure, this was an absorbing and entertaining work achieved through a powerful combination of technical skill and performance chemistry".  Resolution, 2018.
