Cuisine and Confessions
AMERICAN PREMIERE! Direct from Paris, Rome, Montreal, and Moscow
ABOUT THE ARTISTSFounded in Montreal in 2002, The 7 Fingers have traveled the world with their distinct circus style. Past projects include Loft, Traces, La Vie, Psy, Sequence 8, and A Muse. The 7 Fingers have also delivered a diverse range of projects, including The Royal Variety and ceremonies of both the Turin and Vancouver Olympics.
Les 7 doigts de la main translates literally as "the 7 fingers of the hand". It is a twist on a French idiom ("the five fingers of the hand”) used to describe distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal. Here it refers to the 7 founding directors of the company (Isabelle Chassé, Shana Carroll, Patrick Léonard, Faon Shane, Gypsy Snider, Sébastien Soldevila et Samuel Tétreault) who, by combining their distinct talents and experiences, work towards their common artistic goals with the beautifully awkward dexterity of a 7-fingered hand.
"This collective is founded by a core of artists and collaborators inhabited by the same vision and same spirit of cooperation and solidarity. Our intention is first and foremost to create. We wish to think outside the box, to innovate, surprise, and touch. We strive to create shows along the very scale and grandeur of human beings, in which viewers can easily identify with the artists. By integrating different art forms such as music, dance, theatre, visual arts, cinema, and electronic media, we propose a new perspective on the everyday. The extraordinary is hidden inside the wake of the ordinary. In addition to delighting audiences, we invite spectators to question their own perceptions of life and of reality, encouraging them to reflect on their own values and hopes."
