Cuisine & Confessions – Les 7 Doigts de la Main

11. September 8:00 am


The taste of childhood. The aroma of summer. The first kiss, just like chocolate. Recollections and herbal tea, family and festivities: memories are stamped on the palate and in the nose. Les 7 Doigts de la Main, Canada’s export hit in all things new circus, claim “Life Happens in the Kitchen!” and kindle a culinary fireworks display in an over-dimensional kitchen.
Between pots and pans, there is mixing and blending, juggling with spoons, bathing in flour, love and life. What the artists stage is exuberantly sensual and amazingly funny – yet at the same time, they touch our somethig deep in our subconsciousness.
