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?
