NOV 15-19
Gravity-defying athleticism, the lyricism of contemporary dance and the poetics of the imagination come together in this virtuosic triple bill from Quebec circus superstars The 7 Fingers (Cuisine & Confessions, Traces). For the first time, the innovative troupe joins forces with three internationally-renowned choreographers, weaving together a magical journey between circus and dance.

  1. Anne et Samuel – Marie Chouinard (The Garden of Earthly Delights)
    Following in the footsteps of Chouinard's signature work bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS, this duet between a dancer and hand balancer examines the relationship between gravity and moving bodies with awe-inspiring effect.
  2. Variations 9.81 – Victor Quijada (Quebec)
    A quintet of virtuoso hand balancers search for absolute control of gravity, testing the relationship between stillness and movement.
  3. Nocturnes – Marcos Morau (Spain)
    Subtly mixing circus and dance, the mesmerizing Nocturnes lures us into the space between wake and dreams where eight artists try to break free of their physical constraints.
