TRIPTYQUE

Les 7 Doigts have brought together three internationally renowned choreographers for a triple creation under the artistic direction of Samuel Tétreault. Set in three parts, Triptyque explores the human body’s many languages.

Anne & Samuel, a duet directed by Marie Chouinard, looks at the effects of gravity on moving bodies.

In Variations 9.81, directed by Victor Quijada, a quintet of virtuoso hand balancers search for absolute control of gravity, testing the relationship between stillness and movement.

Dreamlike and nonsensical, Nocturnes, choreographed by Marcos Morau, subtly mixes circus and dance, freeing eight artists of their physical constraints.
