Cirque Du Soleil - Totem
Cirque Du Soleil returns to Australia with an exciting new show entitled Totem. Cirque Du Soleil – Totem will be touring around Australia, at various locations, from October 2014 until August 2015. These wonderful, unique shows are performed under the big-top featuring acrobats, dancers, high wire acts, flying trapeze artists, lots of music and dance and much, much more.
Inspired by many founding myths, Totem traces the fascinating journey of the human species. Starting with its original amphibian state, right up to its ultimate desire to fly, the wonderful characters on stage evolve right in front of your eyes, evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.
Each Cirque Du Soleil show runs for about two hours and ten minutes with a twenty-five minute intermission. There will be food, drinks and Cirque Du Soleil merchandise available for purchase on the night.
These exciting shows are great family entertainment and cater to all ages.

Show Dates and Venues
Tuesday 28th October, 2014 to Sunday 30th November, 2014 Under the Big Top on The Showring at the Entertainment Quarter
After a awe inspiring show I saw a few years ago, I dug deep into my wallet to take my whole family to see Totem from premium seats.
What a punch in the guts!!!!! 15 minutes late, then 30, and the audience starts its own show of dynamic clapping and stomping of feet -an upset crowd is not good. Cautious voice comes on - the show will start shortly,clunk goes the speaker. 10minutes more and the crowd performs again with passion,a screech of speakers and...... the show will commence in approx. 20minutes. A chorus of boo-ing and many rise to their feet d walk - to a hopeful refund window. Nope. Others decide to drink their frustration down with a $15 beer or cider.kids complain - this is the matinee of4.30, now 5.30. With more spacious seating the show starts and the stars of performance put their superior bodies on the line with amazement and respect. But he show is thin between acts,not as before, and key acts seem alone without dazzle of 'extras' and their entertaining subplots.Still the focus is drawn to the actors performance. Still thin was the comedy acts, not rushed,more fiddling to fill in time which became explained now as i review the show to see major acts missing. I am a fan of C.du.S..... with a 'can do no wrong' view of them. Perhaps that is why I have an empty feeling in my gut today. Glimpses of past glory repeaTed but a financially struggling troupe all up a bit too thinned out. Many beautiful courageous acts.
