An evening of acrobatic theatrics
THEATRE | Réversible Dec. 11 to Jan. 6, CAA Theatre
Quebec’s 7 Fingers company draws as much on its members’ personal histories as it does on their impeccable acrobatic skills. What started in 2002 as a group of seven circus performers has grown into a sprawling ensemble of artists, whose shows have toured all over the world. Their new production focuses on ancestry by taking a closer look at how each performer’s family has shaped his or her identity. Stories are told through a dramatic blend of theatre, circus and vivid imagery—like the haunting scene of a young woman fighting an arranged marriage as she struggles in the billowing waves of an enormous wedding gown.
