Cirque du Soleil comes to Paris in 2018 with its new show, Totem

From October 25 to December 2, 2018, Cirque du Soleil is back in Paris for its yearly show and presents Totem at Plaine de Jeux de Bagatelle.

As it happens every year, Cirque du Soleil comes to Paris for a few weeks to present one of the touring shows. This year, don’t miss it and discover Totem at Plaine de Jeux de Bagatellle, a show running from October 25 to December 2, 2018.

For 35 years now, Cirque du Soleil, the famous Canadian company, has been very successful throughout the world by entirely reinventing circus codes: no animals, no race for better overall performance but a show, a story to attend, paced with extraordinary acts that happen from both sides of the stage and at the same time, an enchanting music and incredible sets!

Since its creation back in 1984, the company created over twenty shows and some are in residency in big hotels or casinos, such as in Las Vegas, and others are always touring all around the globe.

Each year, one of the famous touring show comes to Paris for a few weeks. We remember of Varekai, Corteo and Amaluna, for example.

This year, please welcome Totem, a show created in 2010 and that sets up in Plaine de Jeux de Bagatelle from October 25 to December 2, 2018.

The story:

TOTEM follows the human species from original amphibian state to 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. Between science and legend, TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.

The show:

Written and directed by Robert Lepage, the multidisciplinary artist (theater director, playwright, actor and film director) which global critique agrees to recognize his modern and unusual work sets no bounds between disciplinaries, TOTEM follows the human species.

The tour:

After touring Brussels in Fall 2017, TOTEM is currently touring Spain. Its European tour will stop by Zurich before setting up its tent in late October in Paris Plain des Jeux de Bagatelle.


Once again, Cirque du Soleil promises us a very colorful show with acts perfectly mastered and incredible backgrounds.
