Trace is an interactive haunting for an intimate audience. Employing subtle techniques to gently welcome participants into a shared space, award-winning performers Michelle Polak and Martin Julien invite audience members to collaborate in the creation of an always new, always unique story. Guided by the performers as they glide between the past and the present, audience members contribute to the creation of a world through invitations to share memories of childhood, desire and loss. Rooted in sensory-triggered memories - the performer's own and those offered by the audience - Trace is in intimate meeting of strangers no more. Trace is a Vertical City Performance created through the Theatre Gargantua SideStream Cycle program. Its premiere production received the NOW Magazine Audience Choice Award at the 2014 SummerWorks Festival in Toronto, where it played to sold-out houses and received citations for Best Production, Best Direction, and Best Ensemble.
"The show presents you with an echo of your childhood, and invites you into a world built on your own memories" Mooney on Theatre
“What this intimate experimental show – different, of course, at each performance – does most effectively is make us reflect on our lives, something only the finest art achieves.” NNNN Glen Sumi, NOW Magazine.
