Artistry and energy amaze audiences

Three Stages in Folsom presents “Traces,” the acclaimed show by the Montreal-based troupe, 7 Fingers, on Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26.

Think Cirque du Soleil, then put them on skateboards as Traces combines traditional and high-risk acrobatic forms with street elements such as skateboarding and basketball, all mixed in with some theater and contemporary dance.

If the world ended tomorrow, what traces would you leave behind? As disaster looms outside of an abandoned warehouse, a group of young urban friends sequestered within attempt to leave their marks — their “traces.”

Fusing the traditions of circus with the energy of street performance, “Traces” is a tour-de-force display of raw emotion and physicality with touches of humor.

“Traces” is high-energy urban acrobatics. It’s spectacularly anti-spectacle, relying instead on the fantastic abilities of the performers, individuals who appear to be nothing more than a group of friends — as easygoing and affable as the guy next door — until they unleash 90 minutes of unbridled energy that leave audiences breathless.

The company, “Les 7 Doigts de la Main,” translates literally as “the seven fingers of the hand.” It is a twist on a French idiom used to describe distinct parts united tightly, moving in coordination towards one common goal.

Here it refers to the seven founding directors of the company, Shana Carroll, Isabelle Chasse, Patrick Léonard, Faon Shane, Gypsy Snider, Sébastien Soldevila and Samuel Tétreault. who, by combining their distinct talents and experiences, work towards their common artistic goals with the beautifully awkward dexterity of a seven-fingered hand.

Traces will perform in Three Stages at 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Monday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m.; Tuesday, March 26 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $29 to $49 with premium tickets being $59. Tickets may be purchased online at threestages.net or from the Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday and two hours before show time.
