Gandini Juggling – Sigma

Fri 07 Sep, 7:00pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £12 (£10 concessions) , approx running time: 60mins (no interval)

Gandini Juggling’s beautiful new show explores the creative interface between juggling, geometry and classical Indian dance.

Performed by a virtuosic cast including the award-winning choreographer Seeta Patel, Sigma showcases exuberant rhythms, patterns and colours, at the heart of which is a unique interpretation of the South Indian dance form, Bharatanatyam.

With its dazzling quartet of female artists, seductive percussion score and sumptuous backdrop of multimedia projections, Sigma is a finely crafted work designed to engage in a dialogue with the viewer, transcending cultural barriers and stimulating imaginations.

Gandini Juggling continues to excite and entertain in this latest cross-artform collaboration, winner of an Asian Arts Award and Total Theatre Award at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
