News   PHOTO CALL: Acrobatic Traces at the Union Square Theatre
Traces, the acrobatic theatre show previously seen in Canada and a U.S. tour, made its New York City commercial debut on Aug. 8.

The work by 7 Fingers, a Montreal-based company, has a gray, funky, industrial-warehouse setting, with lean troupers bending their bodies and flying through the air, through hoops and into each others' arms.

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?"

Here's a look at the production:
