8 Songs is a series of choreographed juggling vignettes set to 8 classic rock and roll songs. A tribute to the mythical landscape of popular music.
From Dylan’s stream of consciousness realms to the Velvet Underground troubling landscapes, from David Bowie’s soulful escapades to the rocking Rolling Stone’s anthemic joy de vivre.
The show is suitable to all audiences but like Smashed, Gandini previous street theatre success – will layer meanings, which can be read in different ways.
In 8 Songs the Gandinis return to their outdoor roots. Each song has its own atmosphere, its own micro universe. The piece builds crescendo style from solos and duets to a full cast finale. Meanings will be alluded to, with semi-literal references to the songs themselves.
From a performance point of view the company wanted to explore the juggler as Rock and Roll performer, what is that trance-like place the rock star goes to? Is she pretending to be there or does she believe she is there?
The company creates a sense of ritual and celebration, a primal tribal energy, something which builds gradually and which will be enhanced by the outdoor context itself.
