When the stage is a kitchen and the cooks are circus performers, you know the meal will be sizzling hot! Théâtre la Seizième is pleased to welcome back internationally-renowned, Montreal-based theatre company Les 7 Doigts (The 7 Fingers) for six performances of Cuisine & Confessions, and we are getting hungry for an amazing performance.
The creators behind Séquence 8 return to Vancouver with a delicious medley of theatre, dance, and circus. Cuisine & Confessions combines touch, smell, and taste with a feast for the eyes and ears, using the kitchen as a cultural and celebratory focal point.
Performed by Sidney Iking Bateman, Melvin Diggs, Mishannock Ferrero, Anna Kachalova, Anna Kichtchenko, Nella Niva, Matias Plaul and Pablo Pramparo, these acrobats unite in a gigantic kitchen to create the most delightful meal. Ingredients are thrown this way and that, dishrags become aerial ribbons, bodies fold and unfold in a haze of flour, and the utensils waltz from one hand to the next. Among all the breathtaking acrobatics, family recipes are shared along with childhood memories and other intimate moments.
Share this event with those you hold near and dear, as we all know, home is where the hearth is. Yum!
