HOW TO MAKE BANANA BREAD, 7 FINGERS STYLE AKA #CIRCUSBREAD

"The last thing one might expect to find on the blog of a theatre company is a recipe. This may even be a first for theatre blog history, if there is such a thing. A recipe posted in advance of our upcoming Cuisine & Confessions, though, is perfectly apt for this return of Les 7 doights de la main (7 Fingers) to the ArtsEmerson stage.

Generally, we are discouraged from eating in theaters. High school auditoriums and grand opera houses alike are plastered with “No Food or Drink” signs. Food is relegated to after parties, lobbies and the hidden pockets of hand bags to sneak after the lights go down. Cuisine and Confessions flips this script on its head. Food is the focus of this show in a more than metaphorical sense. The set and the plot focus around an oven that runs throughout, cooking a banana bread that the audience (spoiler alert!) will get a chance to taste at the end.

This is a show about the power of sharing meals and secrets with our loved ones. It explores the ways in which the food we eat connects us to each other and to our own past. When we cook for others, we build relationships and we build memories. Here in Cuisine & Confessions, the food becomes a way into the storytelling of this entirely unique circus show, granting the audience a full sensory experience. When we say come the circus, stay for the banana bread, we really mean it!"

“ArtsEmerson's work in its entirety is focused on helping us understand our world, our place in it and how we each can contribute to its transformation. We put the world on stage and screen with the passionate belief that the arts belong to everyone. As we enter our 2015/16 Season, we invite you to join us as we explore how to make this vision of inclusivity a reality. We want to take you to places you have not been, in ways you could not anticipate, with a room full of strangers (who are your neighbors) to sort it all out. Let us begin to rediscover our community through the shared experience of art and conversation.”
