The 7 Fingers is a contemporary circus collective founded in 2002 by 7 artistic directors with 7 unique visions, telling human stories with super human circus.
Sounds intriguing, right?!
With over 500 alluring and extraordinary show a year, these outstanding minds are ‘fascinated by the human condition and create performances that speak about our world and our time’.
They are now in NYC, with a spectacle called: Cuisine & Confessions.
Here’s what it’s all about:
“As individuals, we are ourselves composed of ingredients, a unique recipe of blood memories. The Kitchen. Blood memories. A recipe passed through generations. A memory so deeply embedded in our conscious, it takes carefully concocted smells and tastes to bring it to the surface.
Storytelling through food… this is the sweet taste of my childhood, of a summer breeze through a screen door. Or the hot-chocolate-dampened lips of a first kiss. Life happens in the kitchen. Late night confessionals over tisane and a pot of Nutella. Elaborately choreographed family meals. Lessons learned, secrets exchanged, bonds forged, reinforced by our most visceral of senses.
Accompanying the usual eye-popping flight of acrobatic choreography and pulsating music are the other three senses — the touch of hands in batter, the smell of cookies baking, the taste of roasted oregano — leading us through a span of times and countries, all the while the iconic kitchen our common meeting point.”
On The 7 Fingers website lists you can see the countless shows, artistic collaborations and other special events.
We also recommend going to the House of Yes, in Bushwick. They have some pretty unique events and shows if you enjoyed the super human circus.
The Greenwich Village is one of our favorite neighborhoods in Manhattan and there’s just so much to do there. Here are a few of our top picks.
For shows with upcoming bands, you can check out The Bitter End. If you want to go for dinner, you can try Rockin’ Raw for the vegans and Buvette if you enjoy a cool French cuisine. Banter Bar is great for a light meal and coffee! And, to see and be seen, go for a drink at Bar Pitti.
Dates: 11 – 16 April, 2017
Location: NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts – 566 LaGuardia Place
