"PSY," the newest and largest production from the Montreal-based circus troupe Les 7 doigts de la main (seven fingers of the hand), will spring into its debut at the Irvine Barclay Theatre for four performances only, starting May 10.


Most known for their international hit Traces, 7 Fingers' fourth creation, "PSY," was conjured up in 2010. "PSY" explores the surreal underworld of the human psyche, while merging acrobatics of the body, mind and soul.


Founded in Montreal in 2002, 7 Fingers' initial goal was to bring circus to a human scale. Nearly a decade has passed and they have managed to climb the international circuit, landing a debut at the Barclay.


"PSY's" novel concept alone was enough to draw in Irvine Barclay President Doug Rankin, who has had his finger on the circus's pulse for years. Since the early 1990s, the Barclay has consistently incorporated circus performances in their seasons.
