The 7 fingers
“One step closer to reinventing the wheel…cements the troupe’s reputation as a circus trailblazer”
— Montreal Gazette
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…
Trapeze, juggling, aerial ropes, Chinese poles, and German wheels fill the stage, as The 7 Fingers brings out humor, beauty, and the commonality of everyday human limitations, celebrating the power of the individual and finding moments of strength, courage and joy while flying through the air.
