TOTEM by Cirque du Soleil – Exclusive Sneak Peek Performance in support of Toys for Tots #TOTEM

Check out Cirque du Soleil’s TOTEM sneak peek performance on Black Friday, November 23 at the blue-and-yellow Big Top.  This is an opportunity to help out those in need with a donation to Toys for Tots and for holiday shoppers at Atlantic Station to catch a preview of TOTEM. 

As a “thank you” for those who bring a toy donation, Cirque du Soleil will be offering a 40-percent discount on tickets at the box office. Read the press release below!


Atlanta, GA – November 12, 2012To celebrate the beginning of the Holiday Season, Cirque du Soleil is partnering with Toys For Tots to offer a short exclusive sneak peek performance of its latest production TOTEM currently playing at Atlantic Station through December 30, 2012. 

On Black Friday (November 23, 2012), Atlantans are invited to the blue-and-yellow Big Top to donate a toy for local children in need. In return for spreading festive cheer, people will get the chance to step inside the Big Top for an exclusive sneak peek of the TOTEM Unicycles with Bowls act. 

Starting at 11:30am, the Toys for Tots team will be on location to collect donations. At 12:15pm, a special guest will arrive directly from North Pole, climb down the big top and invite the crowd inside to take their seats for the brief performance which will start at 12:30pm. The Unicycles with Bowls act features five unicyclists juggling metal bowls in an astounding display of agility, balance and physical grace, tossing the bowls with their feet and catching them on their heads without using their hands. After the performance, attendees will have the chance to meet and take pictures with a few TOTEM characters.

Written and directed by Robert Lepage, TOTEM 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 Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.

TOTEM is now playing under the blue-and-yellow big top at Atlantic Station in Atlanta through December 30, 2012. Tickets are available via or at the Cirque du Soleil box office located inside the Big Top’s entrance tent (regular box office hours are from 2 hours prior to show time to 30 minutes after the beginning of the show from Tuesday through Sunday).
