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.

A pivotal figure in Quebec’s circus history and a highly accomplished contemporary artist, Isabelle Chassé entered the National Circus School of Montreal as a child. She is among a group of core artists who contributed to the success of Cirque du Soleil. The recipient of numerous awards, including the gold medal at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain de Paris and at the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo, Isabelle toured internationally from a young age, performing hundreds of shows with an innovative and dynamic contortion quartet. As a young adult, she left a mark with her memorable performance on the aerial tissu in Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam. Isabelle has also participated in several film projects including the film Martyrs and the Grammy-nominated short film Satie and Suzanne.

A co-founder of The 7 Fingers, Isabelle co-directed and performed in Loft, La Vie, and Temporel. She also co-directed Vice & Vertu and the third segment of Tryptique. She served as assistant director on Passengers, Reversible, Un Dia, Amuse, and Psy, and was a collaborating artist in the Fibonacci Project on multiple occasions. Isabelle has been a jury member with several organisations, among them the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. She played a major role in the establishment of The 7 Fingers’ Creation and Production Centre, sitting on various decision-making committees.

A fully fledged circus artist at a stage of deep creative maturity, she worked on the conception and staging of Moment Factory’s Soul of the Ocean, a permanent show at Hong Kong’s Ocean Park.

Patrick Léonard
Co-Artistic Director
Learn more

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.

Sébastien Soldevila
Co-Artistic Director

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 is currently working on Prime Time, a new musical to be staged in early 2020.

Committed to exploring the horizons of human creativity in all its complexity, Nassib El-Husseini has charted a singular and wide-ranging course. After leaving his native Lebanon in the late 1980s, Nassib worked as an advisor and volunteer with numerous Quebecois, Canadian, and international governmental and non-governmental agencies. Following studies in administration and international relations at the American University of Beirut, he obtained a Ph.D. in political science from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 1996. In 1998, he published L'Occident Imaginaire (Éditions PUQ).

Nassib El-Husseini's trajectory took a major turn in 2003, when his path crossed that of seven artists determined to make their mark on the world of contemporary circus. With their first show just created, a clear-eyed ally was all the troupe needed to conquer the world. Nassib placed his experience and his passion for art and innovation at the service of the nascent troupe that would become one of the jewels of artistic expression.

As chief executive officer of the company, Nassib has brought his resolutely avant-garde, innovative vision and has turned towards a vast exploration of possibilities. Propelled by these ideas, The 7 Fingers have become a major player in the international art scene.

Nassib El-Husseini is currently the president of the board of directors of CINARS (International Exchange for the Performing Arts) and was a member of the board of the Conseil des arts de Montréal from 2012 to 2018, as well as a member of the organizing committee of the Canadian Arts Summit in 2019. He sits on the boards of the National Theatre School of Canada, the Société des arts technologiques (SAT), and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership (Partenariat du Quartier des spectacles).

In 2019, he was presented the Carmelle and Rémi Marcoux Chair in Arts Management’s Cultural Manager Award from HEC Montréal. Shortly after, he was named Chevalier (Knight) by the Ordre de Montréal.

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.
