Traces, the acrobatic theatre show that previously played in Canada and on an American tour, made its New York City commercial debut on Aug. 8 following previews from July 29 at the Union Square Theatre.
Here's how producers characterize Traces: "If the world ended tomorrow, what would you leave behind? In Traces, the human body is pushed to its limits as a group of friends leave their mark in a run-down warehouse through acrobatics, music and dance. Fusing the traditions of circus with the energy of street performance, Traces is an explosive display of raw emotion and physicality in an intimate urban setting. When it counts, will you leave it all on the stage?"
Traces has creative direction by 7 Fingers (Les 7 Doigts de la Main) and direction and choreography by Shana Carroll & Gypsy Snider. It's performed by Mason Ames, Valérie Benôit-Charbonneau, Mathieu Cloutier, Bradley Henderson, Phillipe Normand-Jenny, Xia Zhengqi and Florian Zumkehr with alternate cast members Héloïse Bourgeois, Sen Lin and William Underwood.
