JEUX OLYMPIQUES

We have been involved in three Olympic Games. We have collaborated, performed, designed and choreographed major ceremony segments, reaching millions of viewers across nations.

SOTCHI

Staging of the first segment of the opening ceremony of the XXII Olympic Winter Games at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, Russia.

In full scale with the spirit of Games, Sébastien Soldevila (cofounder of the 7 Fingers) directed over 600 performers in a fantastical spectacle recounting the history of Russia. The ceremony was broadcast for several million television viewers as well as 44,000 live spectators, including one hundred heads of state.

VANCOUVER

Live performances at the Maison du Québec throughout the Olympic Games in Vancouver. 
With ten daily shows for 16 straight days, the 7 Fingers represented Quebec before a wide, international audience. We also gave a special performance during the Soirée du Québec event preceding the freestyle ski medal ceremony.

TURIN

Collaboration on the creative concept of the closing ceremony of the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, Italy. In celebration of the upcoming Olympic Games in Vancouver, the artists of the 7 Fingers main performed a medley of acrobatic movements with Canadian references.
