If you want to get right to it, jump down to the comments and let us know your favorite Cirque show.

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.

  • Though I have only seen a few Cirque shows, my favorite was Dralion.

    oVo, I think.

    I’ve seen so many Cirque shows that for a long time, I escaped any possibility of seeing one. Then, after years of absence, I felt the need to see the shows again. They’re like magnets!!!  I liked watching “O” in Vegas because it’s so different from the other cirque shows.  Imagine seeing someone dive from several feet high directly into a tube!  The weirdest of them all is Zumanity, a very provocative show which is also in Vegas.  While some say its distasteful, there’s still the element of artistry, sheer concentration and a lot of skin! – Amy

    Quidam (spelling) was very thought provoking.  To be and yet not be seen, to be back ground noise which can be loud and powerful but not singular in purpose.  The performers have taken the human art form to its highest level.

    My fav is Mystere because I had friends in the band!

  • Bill B

    My favorite was “O”

  • Ray

    My favorite cirque show has to be Mystére at the moment.

  • Laurasadler

    iv only watched clips on u tube but im desperate to see it for real

  • Sherwong2003

      Quidam, for it’s amazing artistry and costume plus music.

  • hung nguyen

    I have seen many of the Cirque Du Soleil show but my favorite one is cirque in Vegas. Just amazing how the stage and performer in and out of water and walking on air. Very well done. I just love it. I hope I can win to see Totem.
