Traces (Les 7 Doigts de la Main)

By | Published on Sunday 16 August 2015


This is so mind-blowing that it evokes feelings that wake you up, and make you wonder: “what am I doing with my life?” These performers are at the peak of their athleticism; they are witty, charming, and surprisingly… human; this is what set them apart from any other circus show.¬†The cast of ‘Traces’ use song, dance, and acrobatics, to reveal the personalities and dynamics of their performance troupe, while their movements are so fine-tuned and exquisite that they provoke emotions so heightened, and so beautiful, that we did not know we were capable of feeling them. In-tune with everything human, this show could bring the most medicated and numb person, back into feeling. What am I doing with my life; I want to join the circus.

Assembly Hall, until 31 Aug.
