A community of strangers with one thing in common: they all have somewhere to go. Their reasons for leaving may differ but they are joined in a moment of suspended limbo between two lives, as they say goodbye to one and prepare for another. This multidisciplinary production combines seamlessly high calibre circus acts, dance, theatre and a wonderful soundtrack without ever losing sight of the emotions and the humanity that have become the signature of The 7 Fingers.

Two strange characters appear on stage.
They are fluffy, soft, and ageless.
Will they find out where they are and where they are going?
Will they understand what and who are they waiting for?

They wait for life to go by, searching for something to do…

They take the time to look at one other, to laugh, to cry, to go up and down…
Most of all, they take the time to take their time.

Will the surprises of life tell them what to do and where to go?

A show full of surprises, tenderness, circus, and magical moments!

In a panic, the trio spurts out torrents of solutions, each one more ineffective than the last, but the stream of their imagination has no limits! 

Acrobatic diving, fishing, swimming, sailboat journeys, games in a frog pond, showering, washing, wringing out, and rubber rings: In all waters there lies a tidal wave of pleasure that no dam can stop! From channels to funnels of laughter, Aquaphonie is a street theatre clown show set in the realm of fantasy.

At first glance, Paul-Émile Dumoulin seems like just a regular librarian. He is serious, proud and very orderly. Every book is in its place on his impeccable shelves. The only problem? As soon as Paul-Émile gets his nose in a book, reality disappears, giving way to slightly crazy worlds coming out between the pages. Through his adventures, the very sensible librarian metamorphoses. He suddenly turns into strange and silly characters who perform acrobatics, hand-balancing, juggling, break dancing, and beatboxing. Just how far will reading take him?

Sweat & Ink is an exploration of memory and relationships through acrobatic metaphor. Four humans wrestle with their own imperfections and limitations as they rub against the rough edges of memory’s fallibility.
Would perfect memory lead to perfect happiness, or can there be grace in our imperfection and beauty in our struggle as we tumble through life’s challenges?
Beautiful, messy, painful, and funny, it is a show to make you gasp, cry, laugh, and wonder.

In Circus Incognitus, virtuoso clown Jamie Adkins is the everyman, attempting to relay his ideas in spite of his unhelpful props, and finding unconventional solutions when events begin to go awry. He builds the scene around him using everyday objects and he juggles just about everything. He maneuvers a hat with ideas of its own and negotiates a precarious slack wire. Performed over 1000 times in 22 countries, Circus Incognitus is full of humble, unguarded poetry and side-splitting wit.

Hiatus highlights suspended moments of nothingness and children’s games. Addressing concepts of territories and living space, the stage is encircled by a wooden fence on one side and a metallic one on the other. Locked inside, two friends pass the time by building and deconstructing blocks, webs, and paths. Through the window, unbeknownst to them, a friendly musician neighbor follows the children’s games with many instruments. Designed for children between 2 and 5, the show mixes dance, circus, and theatre in a non-verbal play about the relation to space and to others. Saxophone, clarinet and flute convey the playfulness of the children’s games.

What happens when the juggler, after his repetitive movements on autopilot, stops paying attention to his juggling balls? Inspired by the warm-up ritual, Jimmy goes into a trance with us and lets his actions go unconscious, focusing instead on the sensations of his body, on his breathing. The circus is transformed into a somatic practice. Jimmy coordinates an increasing amount of tasks. The intensity is rising. Chaos awaits him. He challenges himself in this piece five times longer than the typical juggling solo, finding pleasure in the endurance exercise.

As the fog lifts and the circus emerges from the clouds, a collective of artists has gathered to perform once again for an art-hungry public. Moving through the urban landscape, ephemeral artistic moments will push the boundaries of circus technique in a nod to traditional circus by putting the audience on the edge of their seats with moments of pure acrobatic virtuosity. It's time to resurface in front of a live audience and share with them our love of audacity and circus arts.

The show takes place on a magical tree apparatus (built by Peter Benedetti and Kelsey Carrier), with 2 nests and 2 wood swing apparatuses hanging from the branches. The performers move from the nests, up into the aerial tree canopy, through the rope tree trunk, and on the floor. There is a large forest floor carpet that lies under the tree branches for the audience to sit and lie on. TWEET TWEET is directed by Monica Dottor.

IN THE FIRE (currently in creation) is a solo dance/aerial circus show about my dad. The show is based around stories from my dad’s experience as a Firefighter. It’s about my relationship with my dad. It’s about me. This show is about Fire. This show is about memories. This show is about trauma. This show is an homage to all the Firefighters out there, and to all those who have lost something or someone to Fire. IN THE FIRE works with all new invented apparatuses – a turn-out coat on a pipe, a rope loop and an aerial ladder. Dance, aerial circus, video, music and storytelling come together to light this fire.

Le Mobile provides an immersive experience introducing toddlers to performing arts and inviting parents to share in their universe. Lying under a giant mobile, they are enraptured by the nursery rhymes and let lullabies gently rock them while they gaze at acrobats animating suspended forms. The artists embody the mobile, singing, playing different instruments and dancing on the apparatus. They move over and around the public and their proximity facilitates their intimate meeting with the toddlers.

These astonishing manifestations of greenery will create a sparkling and surprising M. Gazon before our eyes.

“4”. A rock-o-circassian epic born from our desire to tell our life as an artist on tour. A story of friendship between four rockstars, filled with typically masculine unspoken words and fratricidal struggles to conquer the love of the public, but oh so nuanced with sensitivity, humor and pleasure!

Miniature circus for all-purpose clown. In a circular space, a clown opens the doors of his marquee to you. The performance competes with humour, the excess holds, here, in the very small and everything finally becomes possible. Circus codes will be revisited. Approach, approach but beware of the tiger all the same.

Two figures constantly remodel a space evocative of an artificial, manufactured landscape. Contemplative and chaotic by turns, the piece is built around an innovative acrobatic vocabulary, which grew out of the artist's deep immersion in combat sports. Intimacy and tension emerge through repetition, loops and mirror images. A DIY electronic soundscape guides us through this fragile world, which shifts between synchronicity and syncopation, harmony and dissonance.

Bold, moving, and exhilarating, BROMANCE is an avant-garde, physical tour de force. Mixing humor and acrobatics, the show explores the dynamics of friendship between three men onstage. Underneath the muscles and strength of the three acrobats, we see their insecurities and clumsy tenderness. Fusing hand-to-hand and Cyr wheel with parkour, b-boying, tricking and contemporary dance, this is a show that will satisfy the most demanding of audiences!

"This theme of instability came from a dream, that of hanging a mast on an almost invisible line which was a wire, suddenly it involved little tension to hold the mast and a mast which would be likely to change. We have an idea of the Chinese pole that is well held with straps, 100 kg on each strap to hold it to the ground and I just wanted to create a line that holds it more than it puts it down... I have a certain instability in me which translates into this piece. Then one day the mast became more unstable than me, the work reversed the roles. And with a more unstable mast I worked to find within myself a stability, a center to be able to enjoy the instability it offered me."
