Latest Happenings



Cirque du Soleil recently announced the long-awaited return of its trademark blue-and-yellow big top to Singapore and Cirque du Soleil fans are excited to catch TOTEM in October this year.

Cirque du Soleil TOTEM is an all-new, awe-inspiring production; a fascinating acrobatic journey into the evolution of mankind, will open on 28 October 2015 on Bayfront Avenue, next to Marina Bay Sands.

Since its 2010 World Premiere, more than 3.8 million people in 30 cities worldwide have been mesmerized by the intimacy and beauty of TOTEM, winner of the 2013 NYC Drama Desk Awards for Unique Theatrical Experience. Written and directed by Robert Lepage, TOTEM features a cast of 46 acrobats, actors, musicians and singers from 17 countries performing an impressive collection of jaw-dropping acrobatic acts, in an uplifting array of athleticism, comedy, soul-touching theatrics and surprising visual effects.


An introduction to Cirque du Soleil TOTEM : The word “totem” contains the idea of the order of species.
