Cuisine & Confessions

A Production by Les 7 doigts de la main

"A marvelous feast…These impossibly lithe and elastic performers turn themselves into human projectiles, hurtling about and above the Cutler Majestic stage as if oblivious to any limits on what is physically possible for the human body… a captivating blur of entwined or somersaulting or jackknifing bodies…airborne visual poetry… a burst of creative energy that recalls the joyous dance-party vibe."
The Boston Globe

“There were dramatic feats of physical prowess, choreography that touched upon everything from ballet to hip hop (with plenty of acrobatics blended in), inventive staging and nonstop music. It was all delivered by a talented, daredevil cast of international performers… This was a show sure to delight cooking enthusiasts, acrobatics fans or anyone with an inner child willing to be dazzled by sheer magical physicality. It was not just a circus act, but a consummate work of theater, too...”
WBUR/The Artery

“The show is a luscious and revelatory combination of acrobatics, dance, story-telling, music, juggling, improvisation, and cooking… These frisky, funny, magnetic performers play with their food, with us, and each other… rich food for the soul…See this show–you’ll eat it up.”
Joyce’s Choices
