SEP 27 - OCT 07, 2012

After blowing the minds of Boston audiences with PSY, Les 7 doigts de la main returns with their eighth and newest creation, Sequence 8, giving Boston another chance to witness their incredible movement-based artistry.

The Montreal based company creates circus on a human scale — placing extraordinary acrobatics in ordinary contexts. They celebrate their 10th Anniversary with Sequence 8, a series of awe-inspiring feats of balance, beauty and explosive physical exploits — all by performers whose basic human desires and qualities audiences can relate.

“A transfixing circus spectacle that boggles both mind and eye…has to be seen to be disbelieved”—The Boston Globe on PSY

Through graceful trapeze stunts, improbable juggling tricks, breathtaking acrobatics and quirky antics, these performers explore the courage and limitations of our own humanity — you simply can’t miss it!
