PUINBAL (2022, now on tour)
“Fascinating” “You don’t want to miss a moment” “Superhumanly skillful”
(response form the public)
In our second creation, we dive deeper into our own genre: making music by juggling. Beats with home-made shaker balls and banging jerry cans, body percussion when a ball is in the air and a hand is free. Waltzing with ticking metal pipes, dancing with a pile of cardboard boxes. Juggling you’ve never heard before!
PUINBAL is a poetic, musical juggling performance about a wondrous species: humans. We want higher, faster, more, we’re keeping all the balls in the air, no drops allowed. We go on and on and on, even against extreme odds. We are incredible survivors and irreclaimable perseverers. We hug, we fight. We’re stuck in patterns. We’re juggling with life.
An enchanting mix of music, juggling and visual theatre, PUINBAL is a surrealistic story that touches you. Armed with their unique juggling grooves, the four performers of Sounds Like Juggling take a go at life.
