Théâtre la Seizième is pleased to welcome back internationally-renowned, Montreal-based theatre company Les 7 Doigts (The 7 Fingers) for six performances of Cuisine & Confessions from Wednesday, January 25 to Sunday, January 29, 2017 at the Vancouver Playhouse.

In this gigantic kitchen, nine acrobats unite to create the most delightful meal. Ingredients are thrown this way and that, dishrags become aerial ribbons, bodies fold and unfold in a haze of flour, and the utensils waltz from one hand to the next. Among all the breathtaking acrobatics, family recipes are shared along with childhood memories and other intimate moments.
