Cirque Du Soleil - Varekai Descends from the sky and into BB&T Center for 15 performances Aug 12-23
VAREKAI BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL DESCENDS FROM THE SKY AND INTO THE BB&T CENTER IN SUNRISE, FLORIDA!
A dormant volcano, a mystical forest and an ancient prophecy... the adventure of Icarus begins when Varekai, Cirque du Soleil’s latest arena touring production, descends from the sky and into the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, for fifteen performances – August 12-23, 2015! Ticket prices range from $40 – $100 (subject to change). Tickets for the general public are available at www.cirquedusoleil.com/varekai or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
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 story of Varekai begins as Icarus, a solitary young man, falls from the sky and lands in a lush, wonderous world called Varekai.
Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest – a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures – Icarus takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. At the edge of time, in a 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.
