"The right blend of dance and circus, theatre and spectacle."

The Guardian, London

World Stage
The 7 Fingers
Directed by Gypsy Snider

Montreal's award-winning contemporary circus troupe presents its latest creation, a playful and poignant exploration of the role ancestors play in the shaping of modern identities. For Reversible, each of the company's cast members researched generations of family history, interviewing grandparents and great-grandparents about their aspirations, struggles, and secrets. Through astonishing acrobatics, aerial stunts, and dynamic dance movement, the artists build an intergenerational bridge between past and present, then and now. "The collective virtuosity of this troupe is something to see—and, crucially, to feel" (The Boston Globe).

Run time: approximately 95 minutes with no intermission
