Dynamic Juggling Duo to Come to Déda

Déda presents a circus-style exploration of human behaviours through the art of juggling.

Forget Vincent and Flavia; the only dancing duo you need to remember this month is Patfield and Triguero!

Join Gandini Juggling Company for a thought-provoking, wildly original, juggling-infused performance.

This style of dance encourages its audience to explore connections between human behaviours and the ‘cycle of nature’. With a hint of humour and slight absurdity, it is nothing like you have ever seen before.

The piece is choreographed and performed by Chris Patfield and José Triguero, who have been performing together since graduating the National Centre for Circus Arts.

Partially developed in Déda during a residency in September 2017, Gibbon is a worthy follow on from Sigma, which Gandini Juggling brought to the venue last Autumn.

The narrative is formed by the execution of hypnotic patterns and juggling movement sequences.

The pair question notions surrounding affection, violence, co-operation and personal space.

The Guardian: “A seriously interesting and wryly amusing fusion of juggling and careful dance phrasing.”

Circus Diaries: “The combination of mesmerising manipulation and dry comedy left me wanting more.”

Gibbon will take place at Déda, 19 Chapel Street, Derby DE1 3GU at 7.30pm on Saturday 30th March. Tickets are £12 (£10 concession). Recommended for ages 8+.
