OXON HILL, Md. (WUSA) -- Cirque du Soleil's latest masterpiece, "Totem," premiered Wednesday night in front of hundreds under the blue-and-yellow big top at The Plateau at National Harbor.
"Totem," which runs through October 7, is an interesting and unbelievable journey through the evolution of mankind inspired by science and myths from amphibians and apes to Neanderthals, and modern men wearing suits and carrying cell phones.
There are 10 impressive acts in "Totem" including the hand and foot juggling act by identical twins from Belarus whose costumes were covered in over 4,000 Swarovski crystals, Amerindians who performed with oversized hoops that symbolized the circle of life, a scientist who strived to understand the universe through test tubes and physics experiments, and five incredible unicyclists who juggled metal bowls, and tossed the bowls with their feet to land on each other's heads.
Overall, "Totem," was a spectacular show with impressive and inspiring acrobatics, a captivating storyline, laughter, and eye candy for both men and women.
