The 7 Fingers vertelt het epische liefdesverhaal van Romeo en Julia door middel van een spectaculaire mix van theater, moderne dans en acrobatiek!


Het Canadese circuscollectief verandert het podium in een sportarena. Twee rivaliserende groepen proberen zo ver mogelijk boven de ander uit te stijgen. De spelers schieten de lucht in door middel van springplanken, klimpalen en spectaculaire luchtacrobatiek. Terwijl de diabolo’s en jongleerballen hen om de oren vliegen proberen twee geliefden elkaar aan te raken. Er is echter één klein probleem: ze zitten elk in een ander team. Alleen tijdens het spel kunnen ze dichter bij elkaar komen. Dat is voor hen belangrijker dan winnen of verliezen.

Let the games begin!

The 7 Fingers boils this epic love story down to the core of its conflict and drop the stage into a sporting arena.

The audience witness to two groups in opposition by default, by desire to rise above the other. Through the provocation and conflict, we catch a glimpse of our star crossed lovers. They are fierce players but still do not seem to care who wins or loses if playing the game can bring them closer together. Competition can be playful at times, it can also be dangerously serious.

The 7 Fingers is an arts collective unlike any other. In 2002, the 7 founders set out to redefine circus by stripping down the spectacle to its thrilling essence.
The contemporary company tells stories using death-defying acrobatics with a life-affirming theatricality that is unique to The 7 Fingers.

Every one of these projects carries The 7 Fingers’ unequivocal mark. The company has consistently spread its horizons by mixing genres and exploring new ways to tell stories. Fascinated by the human condition, The 7 Fingers create performances that celebrate our world, our time and our humanity. Their shows tour the globe and bring audiences to their feet wherever they go.
