"Breathless, wordless — that’s how you’re left by Séquence 8…watch this sexy, witty Montreal-based team distort, upend and mock the laws of physics that keep us earthbound."
- Ben Brantley, The New York Times (Critics' Pick)
From the spellbinding nouveau cirque company behind Broadway’s Pippin comes Séquence 8, a show that explores human emotions so intense that they explode into highflying acrobatics. Starring eight fearless performers from the Montreal-based Les 7 Doigts de la Main (7 Fingers), the emotionally intimate Séquence 8 redefines the meaning of the word “circus” through a unique fusion of acrobatics, hip-hop, humor, and propulsive music.
Directed by two of the company’s seven artistic directors, Shana Carroll and Sébastien Soldevila, Séquence 8 premiered in Lyon, France in 2012, and has been met with rapturous acclaim in 15 countries worldwide. Perfect for families and grown-ups alike,the show makes its New York premiere in the wake of 7 Fingers triumphs such as Queen of the Night and Traces; the latter show was named one of Time magazine’s Top Ten Plays and Musicals of 2011.
“Cool and sexy...This is a show that sets the benchmark for modern circus eye-poppingly high.”
