The circus is in town! Cirque Du Soleil returned to Barcelona after 5 years for its opening week of TOTEM show in the area of Hospitalet. Written and directed by the Canadian director Robert Lepage, Totem invites the public to a fascinating acrobatic journey to the origins of humanity making it an event that you will hear about and talk about – like us in YouStylish.
“TOTEM follows the human species from original amphibian state to ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage, evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations. TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.”
With a cast of 46 artists, actors, musicians and singers, we got to enjoy a wide selection of acrobatic tricks, high doses of comedy, theatrical turns and stunning special effects. Totem uses projections that change in real time to the rhythm of the movement of the artists, that were generating big smiles, wow expressions and the feeling that we want to never miss the opportunity to go see the circus.
During the show TOTEM – Journey into the Evolution of Mankind, you get to see 7 performances:
– Fixed Trapeze Duo
Performed by the Scientist Fixed Trapeze Duo. Like two lovebirds, a young man and woman tease, play and sulk in an innocent game of seduction and eventually intertwine their bodies in a light-hearted vertical dance of fresh, unusual movements and lifts.
– Amerindian Dance
As the drum keeps time, a young Amerindian dancer evokes myths, legends and the everlasting circle of life.
– Roller Skates
In a scene that evokes a wedding ceremony, a pair of roller skaters spins and whirls at heart-stopping speeds atop a tiny platform (just 1.8 meters in diameter) shaped like a drum.
– Sparks of Life
Playful amphibians and fish burst into life, launching themselves into the air from a power track, springing from one bar to the next.
– Rings Trio
Bollywood-inspired music accompanies two men as they compete against each other on the rings – until a woman arrives and shows them how it’s done.
– Russian Bars
Wearing colorful costumes inspired in part by the lost civilizations of South America, Acrobats leap from one bar to the next with astonishing agility in a thrilling evocation of the human desire to escape the earth’s gravity.
– Unicycles and Bowls
Five unicyclists toss metal bowls with their feet (sometimes over their shoulders) and catch them on their heads without using their hands.
We really enjoyed attending Cirque du Soleil, we were 4 YouStylish spectators of more than 4.8 million people that had seen the show since its world premiere in Montreal 2010.
