Yelp Columbus Goes Behind the Scenes with Cirque du Soleil's TOTEM
The Cirque is in town, and a few lucky Yelp Elites got an exclusive behind the scenes look at the action. Totem, one of Cirque du Soleil’s most popular touring shows, arrived in Columbus on August 22nd and will be performing here until September 15th.
Inspired by many of humanity’s ancient founding myths, the show touches on evolution. As such, Elites headed backstage to check out costumes - like custom ape masks, and the iconic frog costume that is featured on the show's poster. Did you know each performer does his/her own makeup??
Without a doubt, it's the acts who are the true stars of the show. Elites got the chance to chat with two acrobats, Sarah Tessier and Guilhem Cauchois, who perform the Love Birds act of the show. They revealed that while fatigue is a consistent challenge, the desire to put on an exciting show constantly motivates them. Their strong chemistry and wide range of acrobatic skills make them an exciting act to watch.
Tickets are still available for shows through Sept. 15th in Columbus.
