Cirque du Soleil TOTEM is a unique show that traces the journey of evolution, chronicling human progress from water to air. The show features signature Cirque gravity-defying acrobatics as well as stunning feats of human strength, coupled with cutting-edge technology and good old fashioned elbow grease to transport the audience an evolving organic world.

Enjoy the following photos and get a glimpse of TOTEM. I saw the show last year in Baltimore and the costumes and choreography were stunning.
