Noted a WBGH Radio review, “Cuisine & Confessions presents dramatic feats of physical prowess, choreography that touched on 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.”

Cuisine & Confessions celebrates the joyous memories triggered by cooking in the kitchen. Audience members can expect to be recruited to participate, asked to set their smart phones to measure cooking time, and may leave the theater nibbling the banana bread that is mixed and baked on stage, all while they watch elastic performers turn themselves into human projectiles that exhibit unlimited energy.

Cuisine & Confessions is presented by the Montreal cirque troupe, 7 fingers of the hand (Les 7 doights de la main), as seen on Broadway in Pippin.
