Totem and NC Dance Theatre


Cirque's Totem and NC Dance Theatre It's our own version of Dancing With The Stars on Charlotte Talks. We visit with two members of one of the latest incarnations of Cirque Du Soleil: Totem. It's premiering in Charlotte and follows a creature's journey from amphibian to a new being that can fly. Totem promises Cirque's usual array of acrobatics. We also meet other human flyers - members of North Carolina Dance Theatre. They are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a World Premiere ballet honoring the artist, Romare Bearden. Guests Melanie Lalande - Artistic Director, Cirque Du Soleil's Totem Amelie Hamel - Publicist, Cirque Du Soleil Jean Pierre-Bonnefoux - Artistic Director, NC Dance Theatre Dwight Rhoden - Resident Choreographer, NC Dance Theatre
