In March 2013, Cirque du Soleil's "Totem" will make its New York premiere under the big top in a parking lot at Citi Field in Queens. "Totem" opened in 2010 in Montreal, Canada, where it was described as “a true wow” by the Montreal Gazette according to Felicia Lee of the New York Times. This opening will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil's first New York show. According to troupe members, "Totem" “traces the journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly,” as told to Kenneth Jones of Playbill.com. According to the cast, "the characters evolve on stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.”
"Totem" is written and directed by Robert Lepage, who also directed "KA", which currently plays at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Lepage has many stage and opera credits. The founder of "Totem" is Guy Laliberte, with Gilles Ste-Croix as the artistic guide. The show’s director of creation is Nielson Vignola, with set and prop design by Carl Fillion and costumes by Kim Barrett. Fillion created the set design with a large oval framework, to represent the skeletal substructure of a turtle shell, which houses some acrobatic equipment. For costume designs, Barrett researched animals, plants, birds, and designs of tribal and cultural origin which would be represented in the show.
