A new production arrives in London every year or so and this show, Totem, employs the founding myths from different cultures to stitch together a fresh helping of Cirque du Soleil’s unique brand of organised chaos. It’s a cracklingly original stageshow, one that makes for a truly memorable night at the circus. Let them entertain you.
