Montreal-based circus company the 7 Fingers will present its newest production, “Reversible,” at 7:30 p.m. April 2 and 3 at the IU Auditorium as part of an international tour.

Ticket prices for the performance range from $23-52, or $15-42 for IU students and can be purchased online or at the IU Auditorium box office.

The company’s website describes the show as inspired by eight performers’ family histories.

“Through a unique, riveting mix of theatre, circus, dance, music and acrobatics, “Reversible” is dedicated to a generation who forged the world that we live in today and whose stories might hold the key to a better tomorrow,” the website reads. “Our elders lived in a simpler era, when time moved at a less rapid pace. This time in history inspired poetry, imagination, passion and staggering virtuosity.”

The 7 Fingers was founded in 2002 by seven circus artists. Its roster has changed through the years, as it has presented numerous original touring shows. The company’s productions have ranged from one-man shows to Broadway productions, cruise ship performances to arena shows.

The Boston Globe’s Don Aucoin praised the show in a 2017 review.

“What is happening onstage is so hypnotically beautiful; it works on both an aesthetic and an emotional level,” Aucoin wrote.

After its two performances of “Reversible” at the IU Auditorium, the 7 Fingers will take the show on to Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and beyond.
