Out of Order, a new online experience from Montreal’s groundbreaking circus collective The 7 Fingers, live streams from The Cultch this month.
Directed by Isabelle Chassé and Gypsy Snider, Out of Order is performed by the cast of Samuel Renaud, Mikaël Bruyère-L’Abbé, Louis Joyal, Éline Guélat, Vincent Jutras, Maude Parent, Antino Pansa, Tuedon Ariri, Anna Kichtchenko, and Guillaume Biron.
"In September 2020," reads the event info, "against all odds, the prestigious Montreal circus company, The 7 Fingers, embarked on a new adventure. Taking into account health precautions and COVID recommendations in Montreal they gathered colleagues, artists, and designers to create a show that embraced social distancing and other COVID-imposed measures, creating En Panne—Out of Order.
"When Montreal became a red zone, further restrictions prevented The 7 Fingers from inviting a live audience to view their new work. Rather than letting the show disappear before it came to life, it was transformed into a film. Out of Order is not simply a digital recording of a show but a cinematographic work in its own right.
"Presented for the very first time in North America from the Cultch, Out of Order explores the lengths to which we will go to connect with each other."
Tickets for Out of Order start at $29 and you can find them here.
