When you really think about it, the concept behind Traces isn’t all that original. Over the past several years, shows that specialize in acrobatics, circus-like theatrics, stunts and aerialists have become all the rave, but few capture the intimacy and edge-of-your-seat attention as this show from the Montreal-based 7 Fingers (or Les 7 Doigts de la Main). With only seven cast members to pull off the challenging feats, Traces is a solid 90-minute marvel of impressiveness from otherwise ordinary-appearing young adults — only they clearly aren’t, as they send themselves flipping, flying and tumbling toward risky obstacles, all for the pleasure of a safely seated audience
