Contemporary circus trailblazers The 7 Fingers (Les 7 doigts de la main) presents TRIPTYQUE, a triple bill of dance and circus, and a collaboration with some of the world’s most cutting-edge contemporary choreographers – Marie Chouinard (bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS), Victor Quijada (RUBBERBANDance) and Marcos Morau (La Veronal).
The first piece, a duet directed by Chouinard, focuses on gravity and its effects on the movement of the body. A quintet of virtuoso hand-balancers sees the artists seeking absolute control of gravity and exploring the relationship between stillness and movement.
The second piece (by Quijada) is a 30-minute hand-balancing quintet, while 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.
