The 7 Fingers is an arts collective unlike any other. In 2002, the 7 founders set out to redefine circus by stripping down the spectacle to its thrilling essence.

The contemporary company tells stories using death-defying acrobatics with a life-affirming theatricality that is unique to The 7 Fingers. Since its inception, the company has expanded from its own signature touring shows to creating theatrical experiences as diverse as the very artistic directors themselves: original productions varying from intimate one-man shows to large-scale arena performances, Broadway musicals, artistic collaborations with renowned international artists and companies, production design and direction, special events, Olympic ceremonies, televised performances, fashion, art and music events, immersive experiences and much more. 

Every one of these projects carries The 7 Fingers’ unequivocal mark. The company has consistently spread its horizons by mixing genres and exploring new ways to tell stories. Fascinated by the human condition, The 7 Fingers create performances that celebrate our world, our time and our humanity. Their shows tour the globe and bring audiences to their feet wherever they go. 

In 2018, The 7 Fingers opened their very own Centre of Creation and Production. Situated in the heart of Montreal’s downtown theater district, the new centre houses all of the company’s activities, departments and dreams under one roof.

Patrick Léonard

Patrick Leonard — clown, acrobat, juggler, actor — is well-known for his uniquely bold and daredevil approach. Originally a chemist by trade, this four-time artistic roller-skating champion is also a graduate from the Montreal National Circus School. He started his career as a diabolo artist and clown at the Montreal Casino before going on to perform in German cabarets such as Pomp Duck and Circumstance, the Wintergarten and the Freidrichbau, as well as at the Teatro Zinzanni in San Francisco. He also performed with such companies as the Swiss circus company Knie and Cirque du Soleil. He was awarded the Nikouline prize at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in 2003.

His dedication to social and environmental causes have led him to participate in benefit shows with organizations such as Montréal-based non-profit “Dans la rue” and Square Circle, the latter of which he directed in 2018 and 2019 in Toronto. Furthermore, he has a seat on Productions Carmagnole’s administrative council.

Patrick is fond of artistic collaborations. In 2015, he co-directed the acrobatic performances for Moby Dick, as directed by Dominic Champagne at the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde. In 2019, he worked with the Comic Opéra (Switzerland) as the stage director for Looping and, in 2020, he directed the Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra’s newest creation (Canada).

Since 2002, Patrick has regularly traveled to Canada’s North to develop projects with Inuit people from various communities. This has led him to ensuring the joint artistic direction of Unikkaaqtuat, a multidisciplinary creation co-produced by Artcirq and Taqqut Productions. The show premiered in Ottawa in 2020.

One of the co-founders of the 7 Fingers, Patrick also ensures the circus’ joint artistic direction. He has co-directed TemporelVice & Vertu, La Vie and Loft, all four shows in which he also performed. He created his first one-man show, Patinoire, in 2011 and has been touring with it ever since. Patinoire, which had a one-month run at the Avignon festival in 2014, blends extravagant acrobatic acts with a fanciful, sometimes even absurd, humour. In 2013, his two eldest daughters accompanied him in his performance as the main character in Amuse Un Dia. Patrick also regularly participates in The Fibonacci Project.

A five-time French champion in acrobatic gymnastics, Sébastien Soldevila studied biochemistry before starting circus in 1998 on a whim. During a three-year tour with Cirque du Soleil’s Saltimbanco, he met the six other founders of The 7 Fingers. An expert in both diabolo and partner acrobatics, Sébastien is the recipient of multiple awards at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris, including the gold medal for his hand-to-hand duet with Émilie Bonnavaud and the Nikouline Prize for his diabolo act with Patrick Léonard. Sébastien currently oversees the acrobatic training on most of the shows at The 7 Fingers.

Co-founder and artistic co-director of The 7 Fingers, he’s played leading roles onstage, including the flamboyant host of purgatory in La Vie, of which he was also co-creator, and in Loft, the collective’s first show. With his partner Shana Carroll, he co-directed Cuisine & Confessions, Sequence 8, and the play Le Murmure du coquelicot. Also with Shana, he co-directed Crystal, Cirque du Soleil’s first show on ice.

Sébastien has acquired production-making expertise over the years through multiple large-scale projects. He conceived and directed the first segment of the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympic Winter Games, as well as 1001 Nights: The Last Chapter, an extensive multimedia production commissioned for the celebrations of UNESCO’s 2019 World Book Capital in Sharjah.

As a full-fledged musical director, he has contributed to the creation of original music for 17 years and has worked with renowned symphony orchestras,  conductors, composers, and musicians. A skilled writer, he is the author of the play Le Murmure du coquelicot, and of an reimagined sequel to the tales of Scheherazade, which formed his script for 1001 Nights: The Last Chapter. Upon the invitation of the prestigious Moscow Musical Theatre in 2016, Sébastien wrote the libretto and directed the staging of The Circus Princess, an operetta since presented 300 times and nominated for four Golden Mask awards in Russia. He directed Prime Time, a new musical, staged in early 2020 in Moscow.

Francisco began circus at the age of 7 at The San Francisco Circus Centre in California taught by world famous teacher Master Lu Yi.  From the moment he started, he quickly fell in love with the idea of flipping and tumbling for the rest of his life. Being homeschooled his entire life, when Francisco was 12, he was able to go on his first cross-country tour with The New Pickle Circus. At the age of 15, he had his own special segment in Evening Magazine on channel 5. In 2002, Francisco moved to Canada to pursue his love of circus by attending The National Circus School of Montreal. Upon graduation, Francisco joined with Les 7 Doigts de la Main to perform in the original cast of the show Traces with which he toured internationally for over 5 years. Looking to discover another side of his circus career, in 2010, Francisco and his wife moved to the Netherlands to teach circus at CODARTS, a world renowned arts university.  

Presently, Francisco has since returned to Montreal to once again join Les 7 Doigts de la Main behind the scenes as Head Coach, Head of Casting and Content Creator. Outside of circus, Francisco has a BA degree in Early Childhood Elementary Education from Concordia University graduating with “distinction”.  Francisco currently lives in Montreal with his wife and two daughters and can be seen skateboarding throughout the summer in the streets of Montreal.
