Book Tickets

Co-founders/directors Sean Gandini and Kati Ylä-Hokkala invite us to enter the joyous and complex world of juggling and choreography with this eye-opening user guide to their performance. It is an animated self-portrait of a pioneering duo and their company, with a repertoire of some thirty productions staged more than six thousand times all over the world.

With The Games We Play, Sean and Kati invite you to enter their world of making and choreographing juggling in a lecture that pretends to be a show (or is it a show that pretends to be a lecture?) presented by the esteemed duo who have unparalleled alchemy on and off stage.

The Games We Play embarks on a journey through the idea of juggling with juggling. Sean and Kati delve into the foundations of the art form in a fun and playful way. At its core, the work of Gandini Juggling is a celebratory exploration of juggling. What is juggling? What can it be? And what is art? What can art be? Each of their productions is an attempt at answering these questions in their own inimitable style.
