The 7 Fingers’ Isabelle Chassé on Reviving Circus–Audio Explorations with the Editor

Circus Voices, a podcast brought to you by CircusTalk, is pleased to present an interview with Isabelle Chassé on Audio Explorations with the Editor. 

Chassé is a co-founder of The 7 Fingers and an accomplished contemporary circus artist in her own right, having won the gold medal at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain de Paris and at the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo. Chassé toured internationally from a young age, performing hundreds of shows with an innovative and dynamic contortion quartet. Earlier in her career she also performed with Cirque du Soleil on silks in Quidam. These days, she has directed and co-directed dozens of projects with her company and is currently excited to be directing the show Summer Tale, scheduled as part of Together/Apart in Toronto this summer, one of the first post-Covid events with live public audience.
