Contemporary circus trailblazers The 7 Fingers (Les 7 doigts de la main) present a triple bill of dance and circus, a collaboration with some of the world’s most cutting-edge contemporary choreographers – Marie Chouinard, Victor Quijada and Marcos Morau.

The first piece, a duet directed by Chouinard, focuses on gravity and its effects on the movement of the body. Next, Quijada presents a 30-minute hand-balancing quintet, and the final piece by Morau places a definite emphasis on circus, as eight artists free themselves of both internal and physical obstacles.

The show is directed by Samuel Tétreault, co-Founder and co-Artistic Director of The 7 Fingers, who performs in all three pieces.

TRIPTYQUE is a Sadler’s Wells co-production..
