Seeing Traces

Montreal group 7 Fingers wants to make the circus relatable. If you’ve ever seen the psychosexual alien invasion that is a Cirque du Soleil production, the scale and structure is dizzying; it’s about spectacle and endurance. With Traces, 7 Fingers is attempting to draw something a bit more personal out of seven performers. In addition to acrobatic feats of strength and balance — both solo and group — the performers break down the wall between themselves and the audience, often sharing stories about their lives, in an attempt to make the circus feel more human. Mistakes are also encouraged, offering a vulnerability not often seen in the rarefied world of Cirque. See for yourself Wednesday at the Winspear Opera House (2403 Flora St.) Traces showtimes are 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday; and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, through June 23. Tickets start at $40. Call 214-880-0202 or visit for more info.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 12. Continues through June 23, 2013
