Come for the circus, stay for the banana bread.

Official Description

Direct from Paris, Rome, Montreal, and Moscow, the international hit, Cuisine & Confessions by the world-famous circus Les 7 doigts de la main, makes its American premiere for a limited engagement in Boston this summer.

7 doigts invites all of Boston into their kitchen for this multi-sensory marvel. Like in their previous Boston appearances in Traces, Sequence 8, and PSY, Cuisine & Confessions showcases their innovative trademark acrobatic and choreographic prowess – but this time, adds sound, smell, and touch (and taste!) to their always-visually impressive aesthetic mix. A theatrical feast; literally. An unusual mélange of circus, avant-garde dance, personal narrative, theatre, and cooking show comedy, Cuisine & Confessions explores stories from our family kitchens--foods prepared, memories made—rituals that underpin our most important relationships. In the words of world-renowned chef Jacques Pepin, “there is something evanescent, temporary, and fragile about food. You make it, it goes, and what remains are memories.” So sit back, “feed your eyes and mouth – and make sure you don’t try any of this at home,” cheers Time Out (Paris).
