Boston favorites and circus icons 7 Fingers (PSY, Sequence 8) return to ArtsEmerson by popular demand with their signature work, Traces, choreographed by Gypsy Snider (Circus Creator for the Tony Award-winning revival of Pippin) and Shana Carroll (Off-Broadway’s dazzling spectacle Queen of the Night). A hit in 25 countries, this Time magazine Top Ten favorite fuses storytelling, music and acrobatics into a magical explosion that awes and delights at every turn. With pulse-pounding yet intimate urgency, the celebrated Quebecois troupe considers their real selves, vulnerabilities and obsessions through the footprints we leave behind.
