Cirque du Soleil Brings TOTEM to Columbus Aug. 22-Sept. 15
Cirque du Soleil pitches its iconic big top on the grounds of the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus for TOTEM, Aug. 22-Sept. 15.
Athletic performers take to trapezes, unicycles, even roller skates to illustrate the evolutionary progress of species. Somewhere between science and legend, TOTEM explores the ties that bind humans to other species.
The visual environment of TOTEM is an organic world, a marsh lined with reeds near an island (the stage), on which images are projected. Tilted slightly forward, the marsh acts both as a stage entrance and as a projection surface. Through the magic of moving images it becomes a virtual swamp, a river source, a marsh, a lake, an ocean, a volcanic island, a pond and a starry sky.
