I have never been to a Cirque du Soleil show before, but have always wanted to. I have heard so many people talk about how amazing their shows are, so I jumped at the chance to go and see the premier of TOTEM.
Honestly? I’m having a hard time putting into words just how amazing this show really was. Amazing. Awesome. Beautiful. Captivating. Moving.
The show starts out with evoking a giant turtle, which in many ancient civilizations is the symbol for origin, and continues to follow the evolution of humans from their believed beginnings as amphibians. As the show evolves you watch the characters and stage transform into the different stages from our origins to our ultimate desire to fly.
My personal favorite act was with an Amerindian dancing with hoops that transform into creative shapes, evoking different shapes and animals in a ritualistic dance symbolizing the endless cycle of life. But I have to say, it was really hard to pick a favorite act. The colors, costumes, and choreographed moves of each act were just as stunning as the act preceding and following it.
From beginning to end I was blown away with each and every act.
To all of my San Diego readers, if you have never seen a Cirque du Soleil show I highly, HIGHLY, recommend you see this show while it’s in town. You’ll never experience anything else like it.
