What Did You Think of Cuisine and Confessions

Thank you for joining us for Les 7 Doigts de le main’s latest concoction, Cuisine and Confessions! 

Now that the bread is out of the oven and everyone’s feet are firmly planted on the ground, it’s time for you to ‘fess up. We’ve heard a ton about the acrobats’ relationship to food, but what about yours? Is there a particular dish that stands out to you as defining a part of your life or culture?

Was there a particular tidbit shared by one of the performers that stood out to you?

I’ll confess that not only was microwaved tuna casserole a staple in my childhood home – it was a personal favorite. Cream of mushroom in can was essentially foie gras to the 11 year old me. Don’t judge. This is a safe space. Leave your feelings in the comments.

  1. We did flip out watching Cuisine and Confessions. Boston—you must see this show before it leaves! Fantastic, amazing skilled acrobats, contortionists, silk sling artists. With sentimental, nostalgic content: food + love—what else is there? Lovely team of artists—let’s welcome them Boston so we bring in more of this creative, out of the box work to our city! Bravo Les 7 Doigts! Bravo!

  3. Loved the show and it is highly recommended for anyone looking for a fun, engaging night out.

    One question: one of the soundtrack songs was a version of the Grease’s “you’re the one that I want.” Can you tell me the name of the artist who performed that version? Thank you.

  4. What a wonderful show! We weren’t sure what to expect, and were completely blown away by the combination of fantastic acrobatics, beautiful choreography, heartfelt sentiment, and laugh-out-loud humor. A well-deserved standing ovation at the end for a truly talented, engaging cast. Driving home afterwards we were amazed to think of all the elements that came together so well, and at the creativity of the minds who put it all together.

    I loved the show, and was overwhelmed by the story about Argentina and the gentleman whose father was desapparacido. When he got on the pole it was as though he continued telling the story. The whole show was marvelous!

  6. This show is amazing. I was entranced at every moment. It went from silly to profound–how often does that happen in this kind of performance. I would recommend it to everyone, and will. It will have special resonance for those who love food–to cook it, to eat it, to play with it, or to do acrobatics with it.

  7. this show is amazing! from the “before the show” to the acrobatics, reminiscences, multi-language, confessions… banana bread that smelled great

  8. This is the 4th show from the ‘7 Fingers of the Hand’ that my wife and I have seen. This was a very entertaining, creative show and I would still recommend that folks see it. However, neither the intensity level nor acrobatics measured up when compared to their other shows such as Traces or Sequence 8. Don’t get me wrong, there were some great moments in this show but overall it is not the company’s best work.

  9. This company continues to stun, not just physically but emotionally as well — whether through the performers’ individual stories or through their magical interactions with each other or through what’s left unstated. And the banana bread ain’t bad either. (1) Bring ’em back. (2) Keep ’em here.

    The skill, the athletes, the humor, poignancy, love, it was a very special show. Didn’t quite get the connection with food, but it’s all good. I especially liked the Clarissa business; and the fiancee didn’t really have to worry…!

    Blessings on this company. The son’s missing father and his expression of ache and loss — descending the pole — he was so exhausted from talking and moving. We were anxious he wouldn’t stop before he hit the floor.

    What can I say? ArtsEmerson, you’ve done it again! & BRAVO 7 DOIGTS!

    What an amazing show! It’s wonderful being in a smaller venue and so close you can connect with the artists. Highly recommend to all!

  12. Echo every post here. I also hope to go again – so much to take in. Totally engages all of your senses. Love the whole experience. And Argentina – blew me away!

    The acrobatics and choreography were stunning, but when combined with the narratives, the performance transcended into high art. The story of the father who was desaparecido, and the narrative of the childhood spent in St Louis, with other disappearances, equally tragic, all combined with eloquent movement- deeply moving!

    I loved the show and loved the Emerson Cutler Majestic as it was my first time there. The acrobats were so talented and amazing! How the stories, music, acrobatics, cooking and fun were interwoven made the show very entertaining.

  15. Wonderful, beautiful, moving. The combination of moving story telling, wonderful artistic-athletic feats and humor had me thoroughly engaged and occasionally in tears. Thank you so!!!!

    The music and sound design was INCREDIBLE!!!!! (ps the PA system is the only slightly less than stellar thing)

    BRILLIANT! All of it. Phenomenal acrobatics, choreography, timing, wit, interactions between members of the company, and truly highlighting distraction from real life.
