CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S BIG TOP RETURNS TO BRISBANE WITH TOTEM


The world’s most fabulous performance company Cirque Du Soleil is returning to Brisbane this April with their visually stunning production Totem.

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 civilisations.

Created in 2010 by by Robert Lepage , the touring production has been a massive hit in Europe and North America and has just enjoyed a successful season in Melbourne where it played to rave reviews. The Brisbane season will open on 10 April and will return to Hamilton’s Northshore which has previously hosted other Cirque productions in years gone by.

Featuring a cast of 46 acrobats, actors, musicians and singers, Totem has played to over three million people across 27 cities worldwide and won the 2013 NYC Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. The stunning 779 costume elements aim to replicate the different aspects of nature and perfectly compliment the uplifting array of athleticism, comedy, heartfelt emotions and surprising visual effects.

Cirque Du Soleil’s Totem opens 10 April under the Big Top at Hamilton’s Northshore. Tickets are available now via www.cirquedusoleil.com
