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.<br />
<br />
Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species.<br />
<br />
Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.<br />
