Les 7 doigts de la main, a Montreal-based circus group, presents their newest production PSY at the Irvine Barclay Theatre for a limited engagement. For four performances only, Les 7 doigts de la main (7 Fingers) delves into the mysterious realm of the human psyche.
PSY begins in the quiet of a psychiatrist's office and follows various patients battling psychological disorders in a beautiful and astounding show. Merging acrobatics of the body with acrobatics of the mind and soul, PSY explores the power of the individual to find moments of strength, courage and joy while fighting through crippling ailments. Using acrobatic feats to illuminate the surreal complexity of the inner mind, Les 7 doigts de la main creates a rich artistic experience. Insomnia, addiction, amnesia, paranoia, and hypochondria are acted out through juggling, Chinese pole acts, the German wheel, aerial rope and teeterboard -- all contributing to the magic of PSY.
PSY has received massive critical support for its unique blend of exciting physical acts and a peek into the perplexity of the human mind. Time Out compared the show to "a human fireworks display": " The 11 performers leap, spin, juggle, fly, flip, fall and just about every other action verb you can imagine. You’ll never want it to end. The show starts off on a psychiatrist’s couch—but, of course, mental unrest isn’t about talking. Our first patient leaps off of the couch and onto a waiting trapeze, and after that the show never stops moving. It turns out acrobatics can function as brilliant metaphors for psychological disorders. It’s impossible to convey in writing just how truly stunning all of this is. You’ll be moved emotionally at least as often as you’re just flat-out astounded.”
PSY will show from May 10-13 at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, 4242 Campus Dr., Irvine, CA. Tickets start at $25. For more information, visit thebarclay.org, or call the ticket office at (949) 854-4646. Click Here for more information!
