Cirque Du Soleil: Varekai
About Cirque Du Soleil: Varekai

London, 11 July, 2016 - Cirque du Soleil is delighted to announce the first-ever UK arena tour of its signature production, Varekai. The critically-acclaimed show, updated and featuring new acts yet to be seen in the UK will visit The SSE Hydro, Glasgow from 15 - 19 March 2017!

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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cirque Du Soleil: Varekai are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
