(The Seven Fingers of the Hand)
Recommended for grades 4–12

Mondavi Center School Matinee Program

Les 7 Doigts de la Main translates literally as “the 7 fingers of the hand.” It is a twist on a French idiom (“the five fingers of the hand”) used to describe distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal. Here it refers to the 7 founding directors of the company who, by combining their distinct talents and experiences, work towards their common artistic goals with the beautifully awkward dexterity of a ... 7-fingered hand. Founded in Montreal in 2002, Les 7 Doigts began as artists on stage, creating collectively, and soon branched out, expanding their creative talents as directors, choreographers, writers and coaches, passing on their collaborative and unique 7 Fingers process to a new generation of circus artists and admiring fans!
