NOTE from Les 7 Doigts de la main Choreographer: The world of Pippin we are trying to create involves the use of multi-disciplined circus arts. For our actors, singers and dancers, we are really interested to see what physical capacities they bring to the table in terms of strength, flexibility and dexterity. We would want to integrate these creative and unique skills into the musical numbers. Skills with contortion, tissue, hand-balancing, hand to hand, pairs and duo-mixed would be of added value.
