Summary

Cuisine & Confessions, the newest creation by Montreal-based circus company Les 7 Doigts de la Main (The 7 Fingers), the company behind Traces and Broadway’s Pippin, combines culinary arts with circus high jinks. The company’s awe-inspiring acrobats combine kitchen appliances, food, and recipes with elaborate choreography, jaw-dropping acrobatics and pulsating music to heighten audiences’ most visceral senses.

Les 7 Doigts de la Main (The 7 Fingers) was founded in 2002 by seven Montreal-based artists with the goal of making circus a transformative experience for audiences, and of developing shows in a collaborative creative process that nurtures new generations of circus artists. The company’s name is a twist on the French idiom “the five fingers of the hand,” used to describe distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal. Their work is characterized by the combination of traditional acrobatics with elements of theater, skateboarding, basketball, and parkour.

Pre-Show Lobby Talk: Thursday, April 13 at 6:30pm
Join us for "Dramaturgy of Circus," a discussion on how to transfer language and storytelling into physical movement and how to capture through movement ideas and feelings that are harder expressed through words. This talk will be feature Shana Carroll, co-founding artistic director of The 7 Fingers, in conversation with Cecil MacKinnon (Theater Director, White Face Clown, Circus Flora; Arts Professor, Undergrad Drama, Tisch, NYU) and Lorenzo Pisoni (Performer, Director, Writer).
