Passionate Jugglers

The talented Ukrainian Vladyslav Bondarenko, a third generation circus artist, together with his wife Oleksandra, an elegant dancer and gymnast, has created a harmonious choreography around the theme of the juggling balls. Theirs is a perfect example of theatre today, where physical expressiveness is outstandingly married to an ancient art, (in this case juggling), at the same time introducing the occassional touch of sensuality. Posture, gesture and movement are skills they use to perfection in sublimely exhibiting one of the oldest circus genre.

"Every juggling act has an effect on the audience. They may laugh, hold their breath, clap along with the rhythm or look the other way. Or, very rarely, they may just sit there in silence, without applauding in between, just hoping that it's never going to end. Which is what happened at the performance I saw recently by Duo Bondarenko, who have become my current favorite juggling act"
