TOTEM Cirque du Soleil | Del Mar Photographer

“A fascinating journey into the evolution of mankind”

I’ve been to a handful of Cirque shows before and the last one I went to was IRIS at the Kodak Theatre last Christmas. I thought IRIS was the best that I have seen. It spoke to my creative mind and my love of fashion. I loved the innovation and how IRIS incorporated the audience into the show and made us feel like we were part of IRIS! I won’t spoil the ending for those of you who have not participated. :p

So when I was surprised with tickets to watch TOTEM in Del Mar I wasn’t too enthusiastic. I didn’t think it could possibly top IRIS! No way! Well, the day arrived and we drove down to Del Mar during the week day. We got there with plenty of time to spare so we had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants “The Fish Market“. After dinner, we took a walk on Del Mar Beach where we watched the sun set and the Surfliner pass by. 🙂

Show time! So we always get front row seats for any Cirque du Soleil show. Yes, that is how we roll! 😛 I really really REALLY enjoyed the show! I just love how modern this show was compared to all the other Cirque shows. TOTEM incorporated technology with traditional music, dance and earthy sounds and colors. It was absolutely beautiful and I am so glad that I went. 🙂
