More than a trace of awesome

I saw the show Traces by French-Canadian collective 7 Fingers tonight and it was fantastic. My hands got itchy from all the clapping.

Traces is a high-energy show combining acrobatics, dance, comedy, and theatre, all set to a thumping soundtrack. There's even a bit of basketball and skateboarding. Oh, and did I mention that they're all pretty easy on the eye (yay for third row seats!)? And they have accents?

The highlight was when one of the guys spun around in a giant hoop (called a roue cyr if Google serves me correctly). His shirt was undone. He had nice abs. I've tried to find a video for you but I can only find one with a previous member of 7 Fingers, set to different (and far less awesome) music, which doesn't really do it justice. Go see it for yourself!
