The 7 Fingers of the Hand: "Cuisine & Confessions"
Dance, acrobatics, and a pinch of theatrics are the essential ingredients in this remarkable show that explores life in the family kitchen where lessons are learned, bonds are forged, and secrets are exchanged. In their latest delightfully inventive production, Cuisine & Confessions, The 7 Fingers of the Hand interprets relationships and storytelling through the process of food preparation in their own playful way. This Montreal-based group gets right into the heart of the home, using circus acts and acrobatics to depict scenes of family meals and intimate moments. This acclaimed ensemble’s name is a twist on a French idiom, “the five fingers of the hand,” which describes distinct parts moving in coordination toward a common goal. In this case, there are seven artistic collaborators who achieve a common goal in creating an amazing production. The highly skilled artists, with their precisely timed stunts, provide the perfect recipe for an unforgettable theatrical event. “A perfect blend with just the right ingredients.” (Huffington Post)
Pre-Performance Discussion with a Member of the Company begins 45 minutes before each performance.
