Totem - photos

I can't take credit for any of these lovely images - but they are starting to pop up all over the Internet, as the Media Premiere was held a couple of days ago. TOTEM begins with the amazing imagery of the turtle shell, the carapace. it's a tribal chant that turns into an acrobatic extravaganza.

Without a doubt, one of the most stunning performances in the show is this duo trapeze act by Rosalie and Louis-David, recent graduates of l'Ecole Nationale de Cirque. This piece, "Lovebirds", is utterly gorgeous, with jaw-dropping tricks and gentle, perfect theatricality.

Big tricks, crazy costumes and intense composure are the marks of this Russian bar act...

And of course, what you've all been waiting for! Meet my husband, also known as Albert Charles Einstein Darwin, "The Scientist" for purposes of TOTEM.

The cone, in this show, is performed with dazzlingly bright, color-changing glowballs.

...2500 people are watching this show's magic every night now. So far there have been standing ovations and rave reviews. To think this is just the beginning!
