Traces Denver- Review

{Traces- Denver}
Tonight Jason and I were invited to the opening night performance of a show called Traces at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts. We have attended several shows there so we knew to expect only the best from the Denver Center; we have never seen a bad show at any of their theaters. I had seen the previews for Traces on TV and it looked great!

{About the Show} - From the Denver Center Website
The 7 Fingers is an astonishingly talented French Canadian company that has pioneered a whole new brand of theatrical entertainment. On what may prove their last night on earth, seven street youths celebrate life with dazzling, gravity-defying displays of skill- balancing on each other’s heads, tumbling through hoops and leaping spectacularly up giant poles. More than just a display of acrobatic brilliance the audience is gradually drawn into the performers’ real life stories and, by the dramatic climax of the show, on the edge of their seats, willing them to pull of the seemingly impossible.




{My Opinion}


Most of the time that we were watching this show my mouth was hanging open, I found myself in awe of everything that was happening on stage. The acrobatics in this show were amazing; I have never seen anything like it. There were several different “skits” and all of them were vastly unique; it wasn’t the same moves over and over. They climb poles (with no hands!), jump through hoops, hurl through the air, throw and catch each other and so much more; keeping you on the edge of your seat! 

They found a way to introduce you to the real life stories of the performers; 6 charming young men and 1 adorable young lady. Their stories made them lovable, by the end I found myself worrying about their safety and if they would be able to successfully complete certain maneuvers, I felt attached to them somehow! They did a great job of interacting with the audience which also created a feeling of closeness.

I would recommend seeing this show, you will be pleased. We were talking on the walk to the car and we couldn’t even decide which part of the show was our favorite because all of it was so great!

The one thing I would say would help to know going in to watch the show; there is no real story line, there is no beginning, middle and end. I was trying to figure out how everything connected but in the end I see that there was no real connection and it was still fabulous! 


Traces is showing at the Stage Theatre from March 11th-May 14th, 2011. You can click here to buy tickets- http://www.denvercenter.org/shows-and-events/shows/traces/home.aspx

The opinions in this review are my own. I was provided with two tickets to this show but I was not paid for this review.

Sounds like it was a fun night. I like fast paced performers, it reminds me of myself. Reminded me of something you would see on Americas Got Talent, lol.
