Great show. Everyone loved it. Kids Adults and Grandma. Performers were down to earth and seemed to really be into it. Incredible talent with ring diving and pole gymnastics and skate boarding and playing guitar and singing and artistic dancing...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“A gorgeously pure, loose and personal circus…the audience immediately understands that it is in the presence of seven massively talented performers.” —The Chicago Tribune_, rated 4 out of 4 stars
“Beautifully choreographed and hugely impressive." —_Time Out Chicago

“An exquisitely timed and energetic display that calls for gifts extending from dance and music through acrobatics and skateboarding.” —The New York Times
“Part theatre, part circus and totally amazing.” —Ottawa Citizen
Traces leaves an indelible mark.” —Daily Mail
See _Traces_’ official website and a YouTube preview video of the show.


7 Fingers (Les 7 doigts de la main) are an astonishingly talented young French Canadian company who have pioneered a whole new brand of circus. Their show Traces was a runaway hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2007 and now it’s coming to Los Angles for the very first time.

The name of the Montreal-based performance group that gave life to Traces – 7 Fingers – is a twist on a French idiom (“the five fingers of the hand”) used to describe distinct, individual parts moving in coordination towards one common goal. Founded in Montreal by seven seasoned circus performers, and now with five touring shows, this collective has charmed audiences across the globe with their strikingly human and unprecedented multi-disciplinary approach to circus, moving their distinct parts towards common artistic goals.

Traces amazes with high-energy urban acrobatics that are at once poetic and explosive, humorous and thoughtful. Combining traditional acrobatic forms with street elements such as skateboarding and basketball, mixed in with some theatre and contemporary dance, it surprises, awes and delights at every turn.

The troupe of seven performers delivers gravity-defying displays of skill which include traditional Chinese acrobatics such as balancing on each other’s heads, tumbling through hoops, and scaling giant poles without the use of hands.
