Seating chart & directions
In TRACES, the human body is pushed to its limits as a group of friends leave their mark in a run-down warehouse through acrobatics, music, and dance. Fusing the traditions of circus with the energy of street performance, TRACES is an explosive display of raw emotion and physicality in an intimate urban setting. When it counts, will you leave it all on the stage?
Circus on a human scale. Be the first to see what the body can do when it's pushed to its limit. 90 exhilarating minutes. No safety net. No strings attached. No limits.
