Traces calls Traces "an unforgettable event." Read more here.

TRACES combines awe-inspiring acrobatics with infectious urban energy. Time Out NY gave TRACES its highest "FIVE STARS" rating, describing it as a thrilling modern brand of circus with a street smart twist.

Fusing the traditions of circus with the energy of street performance, the artists of TRACES employ every trick in the book — from music, dance, and illustration to skateboarding, basketball, and high-risk acrobatics — to make a lasting impression. TRACES, which has been called “a whole new kind of awe-inspiring theatre” (NBC TV), is spectacularly anti-spectacle, relying instead on the fantastic abilities of the performers, individuals who appear to be nothing more than a group of friends, just as easygoing, affable, and potentially clumsy as the guy next door — until they unleash 90 minutes of heart-stopping acrobatics and unbridled energy that leave audiences breathless and exhilarated. TRACES is the ultimate affirmation of life and a celebration of the particular talents of endearing young artists so eager to please that they literally jump through hoops for you.
