Les 7 Doigts de la Main
A risky, tender, solo show by a Quebecois clown-acrobat.
“A worthy descendant of silent cinema, á la Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin.” —Le Journal Du Dimanche (France)
What could possibly go wrong? Quebecois clown-acrobat Patrick Léonard juggles, balances and tumbles with a comically precise “clumsiness” as he plays a shy, eager-to-please audiophile trying to operate bulky, outdated hi-fi equipment. As the objects teeter in an unlikely tower, the show toggles between comedy and disaster, slapstick and pathos. The co-founder of Montreal’s renowned Les 7 Doigts de la Main (The Seven Fingers) circus, Léonard has honed this show over the past five years before audiences in North America and Europe.
Some strong language.
