On an island evoking the shape of a giant turtle, TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. Through a visual and acrobatic language, TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.

With acrobatic performances evoking selected scenes from the story of evolution, TOTEM depicts a world of archetypal characters who, in their own way, witness and act out the perennial, existential, questions of life. Alternating between science and legend, and peppered with aboriginal stories of creation, TOTEM explores the evolutionary progress of species, Man’s ongoing search for balance, and the curiosity that propels him ever further, faster, and higher…

Since its World Premiere in 2010, more than 4.5 million people, in more than 45 cities around the world, have been mesmerized by the intimacy and beauty of TOTEM. Written and directed by Robert Lepage, TOTEM features a cast of 46 acrobats, actors, musicians and singers, in an uplifting array of athleticism, comedy, soul-touching theatrics and surprising visual effects.
