A Magical and Mesmerizing Show – Cirque Du Soleil: TOTEM

When Kevin and I were on our honeymoon in Orlando, we had planned on going to see the Cirque Du Soleil show that is at Downtown Disney. However, we never had the chance to actually make it to see it. We were both super bummed. We had both heard such incredible things about it!

Kevin and I have the opportunity to see this incredible show on December 13. We are so excited — it is the day after Kevin’s birthday! So, going to see Totem is his “birthday present”. This is special because we get to  follow through on what we wanted to do on our honeymoon — see Cirque Du Soleil!

About Cirque Du Soleil (As stated on the Cirque Du Soleil Press Release)

TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations. Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species. Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.

TOTEM The word “totem” contains the idea of the order of species. We carry in our bodies the potential of all species, all the way to our desire to fly— like the thunderbird at the top of the totem pole.

I am a Georgia girl born and raised. There are always really unique and exciting events happening in Atlanta. Cirque Du Soleil is one of those events. Every time it is in town, I pass by Atlantic Station and see the Big Top. I have always wished that I could go and enjoy the show! On December 13, I will have the opportunity to experience it.
