Cirque du Soleil erects its legendary circus tent again in Vienna Neu Marx in the spring and presents "Totem", a fantastic journey through the evolution of the human being - from its amphibian origins to the modern era dream of flight.
Colorful, unique and surprising – that's what the shows of the world-famous Canadian Cirque du Soleil are known for. With Totem, star director Robert Lepage has once again succeeded in captivating audiences with spectacular and polished acrobatic numbers. Around 46 artists, singers, acrobats and musicians sing, dance, jump and fly over the originally designed stage and tell the story of humankind. The stage is reminiscent of a giant tortoise, considered by many cultures to be a symbol for the origins of life.
