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.
Clad 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!
