From August 15 through September 16, TOTEM will be presented under the blue and yellow Big Top located at the Plateau at National Harbor. This show 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 humankind to other species, its dreams and infinite potential.
