Wow! This performance is going to be amazing and I’m sure the costumes will be fabulous!!
TRACES, the high energy acrobatic spectacle which blends circus, physical theater, music and dance continues its national tour. Created by the Montreal-based performance group 7 Fingers, TRACES is now playing in Denver at the Stage Theatre at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts through May 14.
Combining extraordinary acrobatic feats, music, film, narration and dance, seven performers deliver gravity-defying displays of skill that are fresh, urban and inventive. The artists’ wide-ranging talent includes traditional Chinese acrobatics, tumbling through hoops and leaping spectacularly on giant poles. Poetic and explosive, funny and thoughtful, TRACES creates an experience that surprises and delights all ages. TRACES takes the audience into an exhilarating world where creation flourishes, relationships are real, emotions are raw, and you never know what’s coming next. These versatile artists don’t just engage in high-risk acrobatics, they bare their souls through music, dance, drawing, and spoken word – as they attempt to leave a lasting mark: traces of who they are.
TRACES has critics from Chicago to Los Angeles and now Denver breathless. The Chicago Tribune raved, “A gorgeously pure, loose, and personal circus… the skills are extraordinary, and the audience immediately understands that it is in the presence of seven massively talented performers.” Variety agrees Traces is “Beautifully choreographed and hugely impressive …TRACES has the goods.”
7 Fingers is a twist on a French idiom (“the five fingers of the hand”) used to describe distinct, individual parts moving in coordination towards one common goal. Founded in Montreal by seven seasoned circus performers, and now with five touring shows, this collective has charmed audiences across the globe with their strikingly human and unprecedented multi-disciplinary approach to circus, moving their distinct parts towards common artistic goals.
The North American Tour of TRACES is produced by Fox Theatricals, Tom Gabbard, Amanda Dubois, The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and Nassib El-Husseini & Tom Lightburn.
