Passagers by Circus Legends The 7 Fingers Comes to the Royal Concert Hall

17 September 21 words: George White

The Canadian circus group will visit Nottingham on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 October...

World-famous Canadian circus company The 7 Fingers are coming to the Royal Concert Hall next month, bringing their unique blend of contemporary dance, awe-inspiring acrobatics and powerful tunes. 

Passagers, the hit show wowing audiences across the continent, will explore our timeless fascination with travel when it comes to Nottingham on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 October.  

Through the course of their journey in a temporarily suspended reality, a group of nine colourful strangers on a train get to know each other and share their stories through vaulting somersaults, breathtaking trapeze tricks and memorable original songs. 

This one-of-a-kind experience marks The 7 Fingers’ first UK tour in eleven years, with original cofounder Shana Carroll directing the show. 

She says: “Passagers was originally designed as an ode to travel - departure versus arrival, chance versus choice, familiar versus foreign, confinement versus border crossing. Those themes have taken on a new meaning for all of us recently, with the very idea of departing or arriving feeling like a distant dream. 

“The show has now taken on a whole new dimension I’m not sure I could ever have imagined. I hope it will make us treasure the days of simple, liberating travel and celebrate a return to greater freedoms.” 

First founded in 2002, The 7 Fingers have become renowned for telling human stories with life-enhancing theatricality, warmth and humour - and, after over a year without live performances, we could all do with a bit of that. 

Tickets for Passagers are now available on the Royal Concert Hall website.
