Cirque Du Soleil's VAREKAI Comes to the Breslin Center, Now thru April 6
Cirque du Soleil has announced its newest arena show, Varekai, will perform seven performances in the Breslin Center from today, April 2-6, 2014.
About Varekai: Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world; a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into The Shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at The Edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.
The word Varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, the production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.
