Ben and Fred Juggling

The Juggling of Science

Jugglers Ben and Fred are both graduates of the National Centre for Circus Arts, London. Their work so far attempts to challenge the traditional narratives within circus or juggling performance and explores what can be done with juggling in a performance environment. Their most recent project The Juggling of Science is a combination of their juggling expertise with Ben's background in engineering. The end result is a humorous and playful yet educational show for audiences of all ages, which aims not only to entertain with creative juggling and circus, but also to educate.

"With their wit and an ability to illustrate complex scientific notions like the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, the construction of an atom, dark matter and neutrinos through juggling, Gerstner and Nicholson have created a gem of crossover stimulation.”
