Les Septs 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 Sept 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 Playing a shy, eager-to-please audiophile trying to operate bulky outdated hi-fi equipment, he juggles, balances and tumbles with a precise “clumsiness” that keeps you on the edge of your seat.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.
