Cirque Du Soleil: Totem @ Malieveld, The Hague
Cirque du Soleil is proud to announce its return to the Netherlands with its famous show TOTEM. This show will be shown exclusively from October 11 to December 8 at the Malieveld in The Hague. Based on primitive and modern myths, the story of the evolution of all life and humanity in particular is explained during this spectacular show. 


Since its inception in 1984, the originally Canadian Cirque du Soleil has developed into the company that merges acrobatics, art, music and set design into thematic total experiences. Representations that are just as timeless as they know exactly how to capture the spirit of the times. TOTEM is no exception. Based on primitive and modern myths, the story of the evolution of all life and humanity in particular is explained. A giant turtle-shaped island symbolizes both the “tree of life” and the “chain that binds all living things.” TOTEM seems to mock the laws of gravity and physical human ability and shows that humanity carries the qualities of all living things, even the ability to fly.
