Totem by Cirque du Soleil

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?

One thought on “Totem by Cirque du Soleil

  • Outstandingly creative: music, costumes, act selection, electronic visuals, more. In my mind, better than any Broadway show I’ve ever seen. An absolute delight to the eyes and ears. Go!
