Cirque du Soleil recently announced that its newest arena show, Varekai, is set to perform seven shows at the Amway Center from September 17 – 21, 2014.
After 11 years of touring the world under the blue and yellow Big Top, Varekai began a new adventure this past December touring arenas worldwide along with several new markets never visited before.
The colorful show follows the story of a solitary young man parachuted from the sky into the shadows of a magical forest home to a kaleidoscopic of fantastical creatures. The young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary.
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.
