It was a good day to have camera. With a genius stroke of Philly weirdness, Montreal based circus company, 7 Fingers, kicked off their American premiere of “Sequence 8″ with 2 5-10 minute pop-up demonstrations at Reading Terminal Market and at Comcast Center Plaza, much to the awe and delight of the unsuspecting lunch crowds. As part of this year’s Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe, 7 Fingers brings circus arts to an extremely human and realistic level, presenting a daring display of jaw dropping Chinese acrobatics, aerials, juggling and an array of extraordinary feats, in ordinary human contexts every one can relate to.
And we just love the fact that they brought a smile and some wonderment to the not easily impressed Philly lunch folks.
Sequence 8 will be performing through Sunday
