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.
