About this show

One of the major off-Broadway hits of the past season, Traces is the work of the Montreal based acrobatic troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main (or 7 Fingers). Its seven wickedly gifted company members offer a neo-circus show that combines brash athletic vaudeville with the traditions of circus and the energy of streetwise performance. Their amazing leaps, tumbles, balancing acts, and stunts with bars, seesaws, basketballs, and skateboards pulls us in with a sense of danger as the human body is pushed to its limits. The result: an explosive display of raw emotion and physicality in an intimate setting, or as The New York Times put it, "a fix of pure urban adrenaline, mad, pulse-racing magic, with urban chaos turned rhythmic and graceful."
