A merging of acrobatics of the body with acrobatics of the mind and soul, PSY explores the surreal underworld of the human psyche through the liberating language of circus arts.
Sitting in the quiet of a psychiatrist's office, the voices in a man's head instruct him to climb on a trapeze and hang by his toes. An obsessive - compulsive patient crosses a busy intersection, his attempts to avoid contact leading him to perform acrobatics across a sea of pedestrians. A woman, confronting agoraphobia, is led to swing through the air...
Trapeze, juggling, aerial ropes, Chinese poles, and German wheels fill the stage, as Seven Fingers brings out humor, beauty, and commonality of everyday human limitations while celebrating the power of the individual, finding moments of strength, courage and joy while flying through the air.
Founded in Montreal in 2002, Les 7 doigts de la main ("the 7 fingers of the hand") gets its name from a French expression that means distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal.
