Default Les 7 doigts de la main

A troupe from Quebec that does "intimate circus". This is a beautiful piece.

Saw these guys in San Francisco last year, fun show. In addition to the pole scene in the video, there was skateboarding, extreme basketball, extreme chair-sitting, and a lady drawing on a guy in chalk.

I think there was supposed to be a "message" as well, but I can't really remember... World peace? Save the whales? Legalize pot?

After viewing, however, I was inspired to jump off various parts of the Palace of Fine Arts.

Wow the one-arm swinging from one pole to another was pretty cool.

I wish... then again, maybe it will come true sooner than we think...
In the meantime here is a nice game, Ido and an old student:

BTW I'm coming by myself to visit friends and family in Boston/NYC/New Hampshire in August. I'm planning to stop by some CF or CF-style places and try to do whatever they're doing - if there's anybody on this board from that area I'd love to hear where you train!
