“Cuisine & Confessions” – Les 7 Doigts de la Main

Energy and beauty bound together with food!

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!

Dancing and acrobatics, juggling and cooking make this show a unique experience.

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.
