Cirque du Soleil is coming back to Portland soon with their award winning show Totem. Totem was the winner of the 2013 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Unique Theatrical Experience.
Cirque du Soleil Totem
Totem features a cast of 46 acrobats, actors, musicians and singers, TOTEM is an uplifting array of athleticism, comedy, heartfelt emotions and surprising visual effects.
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.
The first performance is March 27 with performances continuing each weekend through May 4th, 2014 under the blue-and-yellow big top at the Portland Expo Center.
If you have not already seen the awesome commercials running on TV here is a little taste of what to expect at Totem. This is Cirque du Soleil’s official trailer for the show.
I have not actually seen Totem yet, but I have seen 3 Cirque du Soleil shows and each has been amazing and completely different from the others. I can not wait to take my kids to see this show.
Update: We got to see it when it came through Portland and it was so good! It is entirely kid friendly and keep the kids captivated the entire time. We even got to see behind the scenes after the show and take a picture with some of the cast members. It was so cool to see the busy atmosphere behind the curtain.
