The 7 Fingers: Duel Reality


“Two households, both alike in dignity/ In fair Verona, where we lay our scene/ From ancient grudge break to new mutiny/ Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” Romeo and Juliet

Circus on a whole new theatrical level. We boil this epic love story down to the core of its conflict and drop the stage into a sporting arena. The audience is seated face to face on either side of the action. They witness to two groups in opposition by default, by desire to rise above the other. Through the provocation and conflict, we catch a glimpse of our star crossed lovers. They are fierce players but still do not seem to care who wins or loses if playing the game can bring them closer together. Competition can be playful at times, it can also be dangerously serious.

The 7 Fingers: Duel Reality (biography)
Duel Reality is a spectacle that will truly astonish all who experience it. The stunts in this performance force exclamations of admiration and disbelief from your mouth... Skilfully choreographed. - Edinburgh Festival Magazine, 2023
The program followed a tornado watch in the city and then 7 Fingers created their own tornado with DUEL REALITY! It was one of the most enjoyable and exciting cirque shows I have seen in years. The perfect blend of daring circus acts and story telling. This show is for all ages and absolutely one for the ages! Audiences should run (not walk!) to see this show even if you have to travel 100 miles to see if. And presenters and producers, if you’ve been waiting for that show to entertain from 8 to 80, this is the one! - Alan Inkles, Director Staller Center Stony Brook
