FROM JUNE 8, 2022 - ESPACE ST-DENIS - MONTREAL
What makes one fall in love with a city? What makes one decide to stay, reclaim it as their own, as their home?
In “My Island, My Heart”, The 7 Fingers uses their signature fusion of acrobatics, theatre, dance and multimedia to tell the story of a foreigner who has relocated to Montreal. Initially following a love interest, that relationship soon disintegrates, and yet the relationship with the city itself continues to flourish, and proves enduring. Our protagonist followed one love but found another: a veritable true love for Montreal itself.
Presented as an immersive circus cabaret, the show celebrates our beloved city in the river-- its pounding, thriving cultural pulse, its intriguing contradictions, its unique beauty.
An English version, My Island, My Heart, will be presented at the Studio-Cabaret during Summer 2022, alternating with Mon île, mon cœur
