Theatre – ‘Traces’ at Peacock Theatre (to 14 Mar)

March 1, 2009toMarch 14, 2009


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.

Set to a fantastic soundtrack ranging from rock ‘n’roll to blues to hip hop, this is a thrill-a-minute show that will leave you begging for more.
