Internationally renowned Cirque du Soleil was founded in 1984 by the visionary Guy Laliberté in Quebec, Canada. Laliberté cultivated the talents of street performers to a whole new level of wonder and delight that has mesmerised and enthralled millions over the years.

The creators of TOTEM are a talented group of artists, from the creative and artistic guides and directors, to the vast array of costume, lighting and choreographic designers. Reading the impressive experiences and credentials of the people behind this amazing show provokes awe and respect.

The creation of this production encompassed intricate and detailed research and design for the costumes, lighting and set. The show's costume designer is Australian Kym Barrett. Kym researched real animals, plants and birds as well as cultural and tribal designs to create her spectacular and inventive characters.
