Varekai – Cirque du Soleilâ€™s latest arena touring production, descends from the sky and into BB&T Center for fifteen performances on August 12-23, 2015.
The story of Varekai begins as Icarus, a solitary young man, falls from the sky and lands in a lush, wonderous world called Varekai.Â Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest â€“ a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures â€“ 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 verâ€¢ayâ€¢â€™kie) means â€œwhereverâ€ 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.
Ticket prices range from $40 â€“ $100 plus applicable service fees. Children tickets are available for $25 on select performances. Cirque Club membership is free and benefits includes access to advance tickets, special offers and exclusive behind the scenes information. @Cirque
