ROBERT LEPAGE DIRECTS CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

Posted on April 12th, 2010 by .

Last week in Montreal, writer and director, Robert Lepage, unveiled Cirque du Soleil’s brand new show, Totem.

As cleverly explained by my colleague Daniel Baylis, Totem is a voyage through the evolution of the human species.

Surprisingly, it was a long-time dream for the notorious playwright to finally direct one of the Cirque’s touring shows (Lepage had previously directed Cirque du Soleil’s Kà, which is presented at the MGM Grand in Vegas).

“There is something really magical about creating a touring show for the big top”, says Lepage.

Totem debuts in Montreal on April 22 and will run until June 27 at the Old Port of Montreal.

I will be at the media premiere on April 28 in order to tell you all about it.
