“It’s so exhilarating to see the ugliness of rape discourse taken on, and bested, not with humourlessness or censoriousness, but with firecracker wit, sophication and luminous humanity.” – The Guardian
“What great theatre is all about: a performance that is wild, incredibly beautiful, bravely defiant, and most importantly, far from boring” – The Music

~And here is the interview with Adrienne Truscott talking about these upcoming shows~
On a warm summer Sunday afternoon I spoke with Adrienne Truscott in her Brooklyn apartment and listened to her insighful commentary on her two upcoming performances that she was preparing for. These shows are coming up at Joe’s Pub and the other collaboration at Skirball Center at NYU, in New York City. Hear what she has to say about these somewhat controversial shows in the following video!
What a great evening of movement theater. Les 7 Doigts, the company behind the Tony Award-winning Pippin brings all their amazing skills and passion to the ‘Cuisine & Confessions’ show playing at NYU Skirball Center.
I was at the dress/photo shot and got some nice photographs of the company BUT nothing will take the place of seeing this show!

ABOUT THE 7 FINGERS
The 7 Fingers (Les 7 Doigts), based in Montreal, was created in 2002 with the goal of making circus a transformative experience for audiences and nurturing new generations of circus artists. The company is made up of 200 artists, administrators, and technicians, and presents roughly 1,000 performances a year — both artistic collaborations and signature shows. The 7 Fingers strive to reach the universal, extraordinary, indefinable, visceral, and intimate worlds in each human being. The company’s credits include the New York productions of Traces, which ran for one year and is currently touring; the Tony Award-winning revival of Pippin; and direction of the immersive Queen of the Night, as well as two appearances on “America’s Got Talent” and direction of the first segment of the opening ceremony of Sotchi Olympics.
