Combining juggling and dance on stage was the special challenge of the latest trilogy by Gandini Juggling, of which Spring is the last part. The result is a piece that astonishes with its physicality and graphic effect. Spring poses the question of the nature of colour and how we perceive it. In a choreography by Alexander Whitley and with music by Gabriel Prokofiev, Spring seems to take up optical teachings and experiments of the Bauhaus. Beginning in black and white, the performance fan out an ever broader spectrum of colours, and the encounter between juggling and dance becomes playfully more complex and colourful.
