Les 7 doigts de la main
Friday 17 – Saturday 18 May
The transformative power of performance is explosively tapped in this new show by one of the world’s most groundbreaking circus troupes. Les 7 doigts de la main (also known as 7 Fingers) return to the Festival after their sell-out run in the Spiegeltent in 2010.
Playful and profound, Séquence 8 is an exhilarating race through the furthest reaches of acrobatics, circus arts, dance and theatre.
Bringing a deeply human dimension to the world of awe-inspiring acrobatics and phenomenal physicality: in the hands of Les 7 doigts, circus has never been so witty, emotive or so heartfelt. Their latest show is one for all the family*.
‘7 doigts put a human face on contemporary circus.’
