In just a little over a week, The 7 Fingers will be in town with Passengers (SEP 25-OCT 13) for the U.S. premiere. As the train approaches the station, so to speak, we thought we would take this time to introduce you to your fellow passengers (otherwise known as the performers).
And remember to hop aboard for this thrilling circus where the journey is the destination. Passengers from The 7 Fingers, September 25-October 13 at the Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre.
Freyja is 29 years old. She has eaten approximately 31,000 meals in her life. She has 10 legs, 10 arms, 2 hearts, 3 birds, 27 circles and one fork on her body. The number of limbs and hearts changes at times, depending on how many people are currently standing on her.
Did you know that Conor changed his name when he got married? He and Freyja took a brand new name, as they wanted to share a name but didn’t want to buy into the patriarchal system (or reverse the problem). Conor’s given first name is also Michael, but he’s been called Conor most of his life.
Sereno expects to have a long career in circus; when he retires he hopes to open a taco stand in Mexico.
Sabine’s mother was a duo trapeze artist; the act was called the ‘Duo Sabine’. Her mother performed the act until she was 4 months pregnant with Sabine — that’s how she got her name!
For a few months when she was 17, she lied to her parents. She dropped the dance program at CEGEP, so she could be on a circus show that performed daily. So she was leaving the house at the same time every morning but she had to hang out at the bus terminus for a few hours until her show call. They figured it out when her mom accidentally opened her report card from school.
Did you know that before Sam joined the circus, he was a full-time plumber?
When Brin was little, the only way his parents could get him to eat vegetables was by boiling his carrots in Vermont maple syrup.
Did you know Louis is pretty much obsessed with Harry Potter? He has read the complete series of books a total of 5 times in 2 different languages and has watched all the movies in less than 36hours at least 3 times. He watches the movies so much, he now stopped counting how many times he has seen them. He even owns 3 cloaks and 2 collection wands. Can you guess which house he belongs to at Hogwarts?
