TOTEM By Cirque du Soleil comes to Charlotte March 3rd – 27th 2011. TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.
Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species. Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.
Fifty-two performing artists from 19 countries comprise the cast as of Totem’s premiere. Totem’s acts reflect the continued development of the movements and aspirations of human evolution. They combine many acrobatic skills making truly unique acts.
