More Information


TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly.    

The characters evolve on a stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations. Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species.   

Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.
