"Cirque Du Soleil - Totem"

This evening I saw Cirque Du Soleil's performance of "Totem" at the National Harbor and the only word I have to describe the experience is "AWESOME." The performers, the costumes, the lighting, the set design, the music, and the crowd's energy made this facinating show of the journey of mankind, a very thrilling experience.

There were moments that were heart stopping as the acrobatics of  the performers had me on the edge of my seat. While they were very skilled, they were times when I feared that they would fall especially when they were not tied off to a safety mechanism. I was totally in awe.

My favorite performers were the girls on the unicyle juggling bowls and balancing them on their heads, the hoops dancer, the crytal ladies and their amazing foot juggling, the roller skaters - this dynamic couple (Massimo & Denise) showed such passion in their performance, and the Russian bars  performers earned them a standing ovation! WOW!

Definitely two thumbs up and a must see performance!!
