At Peacock Theatre
This young, astonishingly talented French-Canadian company have pioneered a whole new brand of circus. Traces was a runaway hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2007, and now it comes back to London after a UK tour.
Combining awe-inspiring circus training with infectious urban energy, four men and one woman give dazzling, gravity defying displays of skill, balancing casually on each other's heads, or tumbling through hoops and leaping spectacularly up giant poles without using their hands. But Traces is more than just a display of acrobatic brilliance, as snippets of the performers' real lives are revealed through film clips, narration and music. We are gradually drawn into their story, and by the final, dramatic climax of the show, the audience is on the edge of their seats, willing them to pull off the seemingly impossible.
