WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

From Montreal, The 7 Fingers is Canada's latest rising star in the cirque world. Their show, Traces, is already an international hit. P-S-Y, their fifth show, is on its way. Just check out the reviews from their summer run in Boston. The ten-year-old company's name in French (Les 7 Doigts de la Main) refers to the company's seven founders, and is a twist on an idiom about disparate elements working together like fingers of a hand. "Most dreams last only five to 20 minutes," a voice intones in the opening moments of P-S-Y, a whimsical and whirlwind subconscious journey through the human psyche. This one lasts nearly two hours and according to the Boston Globe is "...a transfixing circus spectacle that boggles both the mind and eye..." The Boston Examiner agrees, "The performance delved into the human psyche with a combination of physically demanding circus arts, graceful choreography, and stunning theatrics. After seeing P-S-Y, I believe the show's tagline 'Mind-Blowing Circus' is a fairly accurate description."
