Created in 2006, contemporary circus-show Traces has been presented more than 1700 times before 900,000 people in 25 countries and 200 cities around the world. The show has won multiple awards, been invited to America’s Got Talent twice, was on TIME’s top 10 list in 2011, performed at the Royal Variety Performance in London, and was featured at the Union Square Theater in NYC for a whole year.

Traces takes place in a make-shift shelter, an unknown catastrophe waiting outside the doors of tarp and gaffer tape. In the face of an impending disaster they have determined that creation is the only antidote to destruction. 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.
