Fabulous and fascinating! Everything, the lighting, the music, the theme and the artists blend into a harmonic whole and as an audience you are left speechless and moved.

Ambitious initiative of international collaboration, the Fibonacci Project is driven by the belief that through artistic expression we can build bridges between cultures and promote a greater sense of solidarity. The objective of the project is the creation of a multidisciplinary show based on collaborations between artists from different cultures.
The Fibonacci Project is realized through a series of creation residencies in different countries around the world. Each of these residencies aim towards the creation of a renewed and unique show based on a “creation game” with 3 fundamental rules.
There are two creative teams: the “touring team”, composed of the artists and collaborators of The 7 Fingers travelling with the project and the “hosting team”, composed of the local artists and collaborators involved in a specific residency. Rather than competing against each other, both teams are collaborating together to create the best show possible!
Each residency is like a creative marathon where the artists are allowed only 21 days for the creation of the show before the beginning of public performances.
The creation of the show is based on a recurring structure of eight tableaux, one for each of the first eight numbers of the Fibonacci sequence (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21). Each of these tableaux represent the canvas where the artists are invited to create their artwork inspired by predetermined themes associated with each of the first eight Fibonacci numbers.
