Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that it will return to San Francisco with its latest big top touring production, TOTEM, starting Friday, October 28th, 2011. TOTEM will perform for a limited engagement under the trademark blue-and-yellow Grand Chapiteau (Big Top) at AT&T Park.
TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. 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.
Fun for the whole family!”
