Ever since the first time I had the opportunity to attend a Cirque du Soleil show, about 6 years ago, I have been truly inspired by the beauty, magic and artistry of the Cirque productions. Since then I have been to a couple of Cirque du Soleil shows and I am always am amazed by them. Cirque productions completely redefine and elevate circus as a genre featuring the most fantastic acrobatics acts,fascinating costumes, original music scores and engaging theatricals, all woven together to create a story that feels more like a enchanted dream. I just love the Cirque du Soleil shows and am truly thrilled that Cirque Du Soleil Varekai is coming to Germain Arena in Estero.
Varekai, will perform in Estero at Germain Arena from September 24 – 28, 2014 for eight performances only and I am counting the days as we do not get a lot of Cirque du Soleil shows to como to Southwest Florida. If you have never seen a Cirque du Soleil show I can assure you that you will be truly awes inspired and if you have you know what I’m talking about and you will surely not want to miss 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 (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this 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.
