After a long wait of 10 years since its last performance, Cirque du Soleil and its trademark blue-and-yellow big top is back in Singapore this October with TOTEM, an all-new, awe-inspiring production. TOTEM, a fascinating acrobatic journey into the evolution of mankind, will open on 28 October 2015 on Bayfront Avenue, next to Marina Bay Sands.
Since its 2010 World Premiere, more than 3.8 million people in 30 cities worldwide have been mesmerised by the intimacy and beauty of TOTEM, winner of the 2013 NYC Drama Desk Awards for Unique Theatrical Experience.
Written and directed by Robert Lepage, TOTEM features a cast of 46 acrobats, actors, musicians and singers from 17 countries performing an impressive collection of jaw-dropping acrobatic acts, in an uplifting array of athleticism, comedy, soul-touching theatrics and surprising visual effects.
M1 Limited (M1), who first introduced Singaporeans to the captivating and fascinating world of Cirque du Soleil, has teamed up with Canadian phenomenon again, to present another entertainment spectacular. TOTEM will be Cirque du Soleil’s fourth production under the Big Top to be staged in Singapore with M1 as the presenting sponsor, after Saltimbanco in 2000, Alegria in 2002 and Quidam in 2005.
“We are excited to be the presenting sponsor of TOTEM, a spectacular and highly energised entertainment experience that will thrill audiences across all ages. To encourage a wider enjoyment of the show, we will be providing exclusive ticket discounts to our customers, as well as working with our adopted charities to bring more sunshine to the lives of the less fortunate,” said Mr P Subramaniam, Chief Marketing Officer, M1.
The word “totem” contains the idea of the order of species. We carry in our bodies the potential of all species, all the way to our desire to fly—like the thunderbird at the top of the totem pole.
On an island evoking the shape of a giant turtle, TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. Through a visual and acrobatic language, TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species that share our planet, his dreams and his infinite potential.
With acrobatic performances evoking selected scenes from the story of evolution, and featuring Neanderthals, Cro-Magnons, primates and men in suits, among others, TOTEM depicts a world of archetypal characters who, in their own way, witness and act out the perennial, existential, questions of life.
Alternating between science and legend, and peppered with aboriginal stories of creation, TOTEM explores the evolutionary progress of species, Man’s ongoing search for balance, and the curiosity that propels him ever further, faster, and higher…
