Earlier today, to mark the success of its Miami run, Cirque du Soleil's TOTEM invaded Bayside Market Place with one of its most praised and exciting acts, Unicycles and Bowls. To the delight of the surprised crowd, four Chinese acrobats rode 7-feet high unicycles as they juggled metal bowls in an astonishing demonstration of agility, balance and grace, sometimes tossing the bowls with their feet, over their shoulders and catching them on their heads. Scroll below for photos from the appearance!
On February 24, 2013, Cirque du Soleil's awe-inspiring production TOTEM will perform for the very last time in Miami after a successful run of 60 performances under the blue-and-yellow big top at Sun Life Stadium. Since opening night in early January, more than 105,000 people have been mesmerized by the TOTEM experience. Miami audiences now have one last chance to experience the jaw-dropping acrobatics and the artistically stunning visuals of TOTEM before the production hits the road to its next North American tour stop, New York City.
Written and directed by Robert Lepage, TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. 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.
From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec-based organization providing high-quality artistic entertainment. The company has 5,000 employees, including more than 1,300 performing artists from close to 50 different countries. Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to more than 100 million spectators in more than 300 cities in over forty countries on six continents.
TOTEM will continue February 9 through 24th, 2013. Tickets for remaining Miami performances of TOTEM are available online at www.cirquedusoleil.com/totem and at the Cirque du Soleil box office located under the big top at Sun Life Stadium (opening 2 hours prior to show time).
