The 7 Fingers are thrilled to announce that their productions Reversible and SisterS will be presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (EFF), the largest arts festival in the world. A total of 44 shows will be performed at the Assembly Rooms Music Hall from August 2 to 26.
This is a not first for The 7 Fingers Traces was hailed one of the top five productions of the 2007 Festival, selected among some 2000 shows. Fresh off this success, the show returned in 2015. “The two trips Traces made to Edinburgh opened the door to several major opportunities, including a year-plus run in New York,” says Tina Diab, Director of Development.
The 7 Fingers have been invited this year by the producer Scottish Assembly, who will handle production costs, a rare occurrence in a festival where most shows are self-funded. Just as government missions and international delegations help the collective to expand and better understand markets, the Edinburgh Festival is a major springboard.
Reversible and SisterS will be reworked and adapted to 60 minutes to respond to festival needs.
Reversible premiered at the TOHU in November 2016 and has since been performed over 200 times in Quebec, France, Austria, Belgium, Germany, the United States, China and Norway. Continuing its international tour, the show will be presented in Quebec City from May 25 to 27, 2018, as part of the Carrefour International de Théâtre, and in Toronto from December 11, 2018, to January 6, 2019, at the CAA Theatre (formerly the Panasonic).
Set to premiere July 8 at Outremont Theatre as part of Montreal Complétement Cirque Festival program, SisterS is a theatrical, musical and acrobatic collaboration. A co-production between Les 7 Doigts and Blue Line Productions, the show is directed by Gypsy Snider (Les 7 Doigts) and features artists Ayin and Miriam De Sela, acrobat William Underwood, and harpist Sarah Pagé.
