Fine Arts Center Concert Hall


7 Doigts invites you into their kitchen for this multi-sensory marvel. Cuisine and Confessions colorfully displays that life happens in the kitchen and that storytelling can happen through food. In this show, the audience's most visceral senses are heightened by high-flying, eye-popping acrobatics, elaborate choreography, and pulsating music coupled with visuals of mixing batter, baking cookies, and sprinkling oregano. So sit back, "feed your eyes and mouth – and make sure you don't try any of this at home," cheers Time Out (Paris).
