Cirque du Soleil is playing in Perth with their show Totem.
As a first time experience of this famous troupe I was blown away by the skills of the performers. The fliers were fantastic - but the rug spinners and especially the women on the 3 metre tall or so unicycles throwing bowls onto each others heads with their feet While cycling backwards. Really took the cake for me.
The lighting and effects were extraordinary too, with the tide coming in and out, and the spectacular costumes and sets.
The clowns were non scary and very funny - skilled too, I especially liked Misha and his musical piece.
9/10 Highly recommended and finding yourself in the middle of The Carnival of Cultures in zero gravity on the Sid and Nancy scale .﻿
