Back by popular demand! Patinoire by 7 Fingers from Montréal opened the 2018 St. John’s International CircusFest to a sold-out audience. The Arts and Culture Centers’ are pleased to partner with the St. John’s International CircusFest and Wonderbolt Productions to bring this exciting show to audiences in St. John’s, Corner Brook, and Gander! This is your chance to see this BRILLIANT show on the big stage!
An audience. A frog. A fork. A ukulele. A touch of entertainment, of vulnerability and of despair. A body that cracks. A blue jacket. A table. Laughter. Tears. Skating between circus, theatre, dance and music, Patinoire plays in fragile, moving sands, in the joyful despair inside of us. Fanfare for a solitary man, an unfortunate circus, a factory of jokes.
A show by 7 Fingers (Les 7 Doigts) is always an event. From success to success, the Montréal-based company has traveled the world. This time, Patinoire features one of the co-founders, Patrick Léonard—a rare occurrence— in a masterful performance where precision and rigor play alongside poetry. A tightrope walker, wacky clown, and joker, he skates hard to succeed! He makes every effort to gain admiration with his stunts. Between circus and theatre, dance and music, Patrick Léonard plays on imbalances and vulnerability, with little to nothing, asking this question: how far are we willing to go to love and be loved?
