This seven-member circus troupe from Québec, founded in 2002, uses over 100 years of collective performance experience to concoct imaginative and immersive recipes for sparkling, athletic theatrics. Its name is a twist on a French idiom ("the five fingers of the hand"), which is used to describe distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal. In Cuisine & Confessions, deep associations with smell, taste, and life around the kitchen table are stirred into acrobatic flights, mixed with dance and a dash of rock music, and served up with take-home banana bread (really!) for an undeniably unforgettable experience of circus-style storytelling through food.
Recommended for ages six and up
This performance will last approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
