Cirque du Soleil Returning to the Portland Expo Center

Festivals and Events, Oregon, Things to Do Select Registry – February 12, 2014

The Portland Expo Center will come alive next month with Cirque du Soleil’s TOTEM. The show opens on March 27, 2014 and tickets are on sale now!

Prepare yourself for something between science and legend. Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential. The show illustrates the evolutionary progression of species through a visual and acrobatic language. You will learn about the species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. The characters featured in this fascinating journey evolve on the stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.

TOTEM acts include the Rings Trio, Unicycles and Bowls, Manipulation, Russian Bars, Roller Skates, Fixed Trapeze Duo, Hand Balancing, Hoops Dancers, Bars, Foot Juggling, and Devil Sticks. Characters like The Amerindian Dancer, The Crystal Man, The Scientist, The Tracker, Valentino and Clown Misha will blow your mind. This show in Portland, Oregon is not to be missed. Here’s what people are saying about it…

“…a mesmeric creative team doing its most astonishing work yet.” - Los Angeles Times

“GO! — A whimsical look at evolution … this production bursts with wonder at mankind’s feats.” - LA Weekly

“This celebration of sheer human achievement and audience appreciation is simply thrilling. It’s why we love Cirque du Soleil, and always will.” - Los Angeles Times

Knowing what you do now about Cirque du Soleil’s TOTEM, it’s time to start planning your trip. First, purchase your tickets for TOTEM at the Portland Expo Center, the west coast’s largest multi-purpose facility that hosts 100 events and 500,000 people each year. The 52-acre campus boasts five spacious exhibit halls, which total more than 333,000 square feet and ten varied meeting rooms. It’s easily accessible by taking Exit 306B off I-5 or TriMet light rail MAX yellow line. It’s also easily accessible from one of our Select Registry properties we hope you’ll consider for your stay.

The magnificent 1911 Portland’s White House would be enough reason in itself to visit the city’s Northeast Historic Irvington District. It’s remarkably similar to the D.C. landmark, with sparkling European chandeliers, a formal dining room, grand ballroom, grand staircase, leaded glass windows, gilt-gold ceilings and tromp l’oeil. But that’s just the beginning. The former summer home of lumber baron Robert Lytle has been exquisitely restored by Innkeeper Lanning Blanks. The White House features extensive collections of porcelains, 18th- and 19th-century oils and an immaculate garden courtyard. Come experience the elegance and high style of 100 years ago, with today’s relaxed conviviality.
