A teeter-totter is harmless, right? Sure, until two men plummet from 20+ feet above to land on the teeter to send another guy tottering to the ceiling. Then, a teeter-totter officially becomes a death threat. Broadway in Chicago presents the Chicago premiere of Traces. The Montreal-based performance troupe kicks off its North American Tour at the newly renovated Broadway Playhouse. Six guys and a gal open the show with a strobe-lit pulsating number of flips and tumbles. With exhilarating music and shadow silhouettes, people are flying through the air without wires or nets.

Chairs - Florian ZumkehrClad in similar suits, the ensemble sheds their attire in a let's-get-down-to-business energy. Traces stomps the mundane with Fuerza Bruta jams and Hephaestus stunts to Rent stories. The result is a heart-pounding, heart-tugging, heart-attacking spectacle. I heart Traces!
