Cirque du Soleil returns to Miami with TOTEM, a new big top production. TOTEM premieres on January 10, 2013 for a limited engagement under the blue and yellow Big Top at its new Miami location: next to Sun Life Stadium, Lot 14.
The word “totem” contains the idea of the order of species. We carry in our bodies the potential of all species, all the way to our desire to fly—like the thunderbird at the top of the totem pole.
Written and directed by Robert Lepage, 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.
The cast of TOTEM comprises of 52 performing artists from 19 countries.
If you haven’t caught any of Cirque Du Soleil shows, I would put it on your to-do list. The acrobatics, physical strength, costumes and sets are absolutely amazing. Totem without a doubt, will be another one of their magnificent shows.
