As the Canadian circus troupe The 7 Fingers (Les Sept Doights) close their London show ’Traces’ at Holborn’s Peacock Theatre this evening they’re sure to be celebrating what can only be described as a feat. The multi-talented heptad wove together a collage of scenes incorporating acrobatics, acting, musical talent, dance and art to demonstrate skill and strength with the greatest elegance.
We took our seats to a stage backdrop lit up by a live streaming of the audience filing into the auditorium courtesy of the reception security cameras. Real time projections continued once the show started, with Hou Kai's cityscape illustrations, created onstage, projected for all to see.
thumbs up to the 7 fingers
