Juggling Concert

“Nowadays, the Juggling Concert is one of the most useful, most beneficial products created on Our soil, our truly true Slovenian fruit, bright and beautiful. At a time when everyone sees the real situation, when everyone understands what the point is and which way to go. Mismo Nismo teach us to believe in the power of heart, soul and progress that brings light to nations. They tell this with intricate, lavish juggling figures, and for that reason it works even better. They have achieved that the ideals, higher ambitions and faith in the power and importance of the individual have settled in the soul of today’s generation.”

The new creation of the Mismo Nismo collective, which they started creating in the spring of 2019, puts the circus ensemble in the identity of a girl/boy band. In the Juggling Concert, the art of juggling is equally connected to singing, recitation and other communication with the audience. Juggling moves through the cleft membrane between the position of the front (wo)man and the back vocals or back jugglers.

The conceptual apparatus of the stage subjects was marinated in a cocktail of compost comments on the internet, an anti-authoritarian fuck-off and three slices of ginger. We snack on snacks in a frisky shirt, while we most sincerely want children’s songs about farts.

The show occasionally farts now and then. If it is political, it is a political beast. Violence is here and romance is there. Can we be united in anything if we are so different? If we took such different products off the shelves? Maybe choreography is the only thing that unites us? We spit on ourselves because we piss against the wind, we spit on structures because we want them to be flexible and inclusive. Juggling and music connected – together: with more subversive power than ever before. Juggling Concert.
