Christina and I went to Totem in San Francisco on Friday afternoon. According to its website:
“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.”
I loved the acts but I don’t know how congruent they were. They all didn’t seem to tell much of a story, it was a little bit disjointed in parts. Le Reve was so much better but we certainly still enjoyed ourselves. If you’ve seen Totem, what do you think?
