Pure elegance and flows of adrenaline in a stirring contemporary circus performance.
Imagine your grandparents at your age. What were their lives like? The performers from Canadian Les 7 doigts de la main have searched their own roots and unveiled past stories as well as skeletons in the closets that affects their own identities and lives today one way or another. The result is Reversible, a captivating mix of circus, dance, theatre, and acrobatics, dedicated to a generation who forged the world we live in today. Can their stories be a guide in our search for a better future? This is explored in a melancholy performance guaranteed to give you goose bumps, where every day lives blossoms into spectacular universes filled with beauty, emotions, and hope.
Les 7 doigts de la main are back in Bergen with a brand new performance after last having visited the Bergen International Festival in 2014 with the great success Traces. The company does 500 performances a year all over the world, one of them a performance at the Olympics opening ceremony in Sotsij in 2014.
