“… the humor flows, the high-volume electro soundtrack thunders, and the audience begs for more.” –Libération
Based in French Canada, this cirque brings circus to a human scale. Set on a vertical canvas without specific time or place, Sequence 8 breaks down the wall between performers and audience, allowing individual personalities to emerge. The result: “Magic! There are moments in which we feel we are on the roof of the universe. A perfect blend of virtuosic technique, fantasy, and poetry.”
Les 7 doigts de la main was founded in 2002 with a mission to bring circus to a human scale. The company’s unique name is a twist on the French expression “the five fingers of the hand,” which describes distinct parts united and moving in coordination towards one common goal. 7 Fingers’ newest creation, Séquence 8 carries emotional dynamics to a point of explosion and propulsion. In this show, heightened emotions spring into action, and relationships transform and evolve until they create actual velocity. Set not in a specific time or place but rather on a vertical canvas of sorts, this acrobatic dance and theater piece contemplates the role of the “other” and how we define ourselves through and against it.
“7 Fingers’ Sequence 8 is fantastic” – Philly.com
“A Hell of a show.” – Boston Globe
