Smashed: Jugglers, Circus Skills & Eclectic Music
26th November 2016
20:30pm – 21:30pm, Le Carre, Sainte-Maxime
Introducing Smashed, which is the name given to the latest instalment from the Gandini juggling troupe. Involving 9 jugglers, 80 apples and 4 crockery sets in what is described as a cross between circus and theatre. Smashed has been acclaimed the world over for its precise formations and complex, mathematically driven sequences, and for one night only you are able to see the dynamic juggling nine-piece in action at Le Carre, Sainte-Maxime.
Set to the much revered music of Tammy Wynette, Louis Armstrong, Bach and Vivaldi, Smashed is compelling right from the off as jugglers perform solos, duets and then come together in perfect synchronisation in a performance which is chaotic, yet mesmeric and worthy of all the positive applause that has been sent its way.
So be sure to get yourself down to Smashed, which The Guardian (4 Stars) describes as “a show in which the tensions between mind and body, concentration and distraction, surface blandness and hidden emotion, mathematical patterns and chaos often threaten to explode, and do in a finale of smashed crockery, which is as terrifyingly vicious as it is funny”.
New Beaujolais Festival in Sainte-Maxime
17th November 2016
From 18:30pm, Casino Barriere, Sainte-Maxime
On the third Thursday of November the whole of France celebrates its annual New Beaujolais Festival, the date in which the Beaujolais wine-making ends and the good bit commences; the tasting.
Of the venues taking up this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau celebrations, Casino Barriere is certain not to disappoint as the carnival feeling of Beaujolais is adopted by the exquisitely designed casino, located in the heart of Sainte-Maxime amongst the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the Mediterranean that are synonymous with the South of France.
Made from handpicked Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France and renowned for its fruity demeanour, the wine consumed at the New Beaujolais Festival throws France into a sense of wine fuelled merriment as wine-lovers nationwide indulge in the first of the year’s harvest. Unlike a traditional red, Beaujolais is the result of a quick fermentation process, producing a fresh and fruity wine (best served chilled) which has become a firm favourite the world over.
