7 Fingers

joel stepsAcrobatic Comedy: “Ich bin Joel Baker,” a disheveled, silly, and clumsy roommate with an identity crisis. First creation of the Collective, LOFT originally put on stage the seven co-founders of Les 7 doigts de la main with DJ Pocket. The action unfolds in a loft, as seven close friends employ every object at their disposal — apples, shoes, bathtubs, flashlights, knives, lampshades, Barbie dolls — to entertain themselves in the monotony of their daily lives.” When first formed in 2002, each of the founding members had nearly 20 years of performance experience under their belts. Drawing from their decades on the road and in the ring, these friends and colleagues now shared a desire to break the mold, to offer a brand new form of circus performance.
