Les 7 Doigts de la Main
Masterful solo show by renowned Quebec artist tugs the heart strings while craftily deploying peerless circus skills.
“A worthy descendant of silent cinema, á la Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin.” —Le Journal Du Dimanche (France)
Quebec’s Les 7 Doigts de la Main (Seven Fingers) fascinates audiences across continents and languages with works that flit between circus and theater, comedy and poetry. In this solo performance, Seven Fingers co-founder Patrick Léonard tugs the heart strings while craftily deploying peerless circus skills. Playing a shy, eager-to-please audiophile trying to operate bulky outdated hi-fi equipment, he juggles, balances and tumbles with a precise “clumsiness” that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Will the next moment bring satisfaction or disaster?
Some strong language.
