A new work by Les 7 doigts de la main is an event in itself, and Passagers is no exception.
In the spirit of the collective’s previous shows, Passagers pushes the limits of the scenic experience in a quest to arrive at what is universal, extraordinary, indefinable, visceral and deeply personal within us all. Passagers is a fusion of dance, physicality, music and acrobatics set against a backdrop where travel nostalgia meets the modern-day multimedia world. Shana Carroll, who directed Traces, Séquence 8 and Cuisine & Confessions among others, has put together an exceptional design team for this show, which is complete with original musical compositions, an ingenious set and an international cast of eight artists.
The narrative arc follows that of a journey: In a train car, strangers cross paths as they negotiate departures and arrivals, stillness and acceleration, the familiar and the foreign.
Driven by the same, creative, multidisciplinary and collaborative approach that marks all of the company’s work, Passagers invites us to enter a fascinating world that reveals the tender intimacies of characters so much like ourselves.

Les 7 doigts translates literally as “the 7 fingers”. It is a twist on a French idiom (“the five fingers of the hand”) used to describe distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal. Here it refers to the 7 founding directors of the company (Isabelle Chassé, Shana Carroll, Patrick Léonard, Faon Shane, Gypsy Snider, Sébastien Soldevila et Samuel Tétreault) who, by combining their distinct talents and experiences, work towards their common artistic goals with the beautifully awkward dexterity of a 7-fingered hand.
