Les 7 Doigts de la Main: Sequence 8
From 7 Fingers (Les 7 Doigts de la Main), the innovative Canadian performance troupe whose show Tracers was an international hit, comes this awe-inspiring show that's been called a "perfect blend of virtuosic technique, fantasy and poetry" (La Presse). The preternaturally gifted performers of 7 Fingers really know how to put on a show, combining inventive juggling, aerial rope, teeterboard and circus skills to dazzling effect. The new show, Sequence 8, carries emotional dynamics to the point of explosion in an acrobatic dance and theater piece that contemplates the role of the "other" -- and how we define ourselves in relation to it. Come to Portland's Newmark Theatre to see the troupe that prompted Time Out to rave: "[Y]ou'll be moved emotionally at least as often as you're just flat-out astounded."
