'Cirque du Soleil: Totem' at CitiField

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

"Cirque du Soleil" is back in New York with its astonishing production "Totem." I got to go behind the scenes to meet some of the cast and I even got to try out a few of the acts.

"Totem" is based on the evolution of mankind. It takes us from our animalistic state from amphibians to apes and to humans. It then lifts us onwards up and upwards as we experience our desire to fly.

With 11 acts and 46 performers you can imagine the amount of costumes, accessories and monkey masks in the wardrobe department.

From glow in the dark costumes, monkey suits, Native American-styled clothes and even green amphibians. Speaking of frogs, I met the Cirque artists that flipped and swung from bar to bar: Caoliang Wang and Umihiko Miya.

I may not be as good a gymnast as these guys but I sure gave it a good try.

Sarah Tessier and Guilhem Cauchois, the trapeze duo, are what we call "love birds."

"Cirque du Soleil: Totem" is playing at CitiField until May 12, 2013.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.
