ABOUT THE SHOW:
From the brilliant company that brought you Traces, Seven Fingers returns with PSY an unbelievable merging of acrobatics of the body and acrobatics of the mind and soul. PSY delves into the rich and surreal underworld of the human psyche, traveling through a shifting landscape of distorted visions, fading dreams and fractured memories.
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. In the clammer of a busy intersection, an OCD patient is jostled through the traffic, his attempts to avoid contact leading him to perform acrobatics across a sea of pedestrians. One woman, while confronting agoraphobia, is lead to swing through the air, and a fourth man searches for his own identity in a crowd of masked faces, all upside down, balancing on their hands.
Insomnia, addiction, amnesia, paranoia, hypochondria, juggling, Chinese pole, German wheel, aerial rope, teeterboard. By juxtaposing these darker issues with the invigorating and life-affirming language of circus arts, PSY brings out the humor, beauty, and commonality of these various neuroses, all the while celebrating the power of the individual to surmount their ailments and self-imposed restrictions, finding moments of strength, courage and joy while flying through the air.
“Watching PSY is like having the front-row seat to someone else’s fever dream. Seven Fingers raises the bar on what cirque nouveau can do–not just physically but emotionally.” – Boston Herald
“At heart, this is an ensemble circus show with a storming, eclectic soundtrack… PSY creates a special sort of madness–a therapy everyone needs.” – The Stage, UK
