    by Alenka at Stožice on 02.06.2017

    Čudovita predstava! Super akrobatika! Umetniki so se potrudili in govorili tudi v slovenščini, kar je bilo zelo simpatično. Izredno lep dogodek v Ljubljani!

VAREKAI - A MAGICAL VOLCANO

Cirque du Soleil achieves the impossible! Drama and acrobatics on the stage of our dreams

The magical world of Varekai, Cirque du Soleil's breath-taking arena production, achieves the impossible. The mysteries of the universe and human imagination are reflected in suspense-packed dream sequences of drama and action.

 

Between early October 2015 and the end of February 2016, the breathtaking, colorful show visits Germany, Austria and Luxembourg twelve times. Berlin, Leipzig, Stuttgart, Mannheim, Vienna, Dortmund, Cologne, Innsbruck, Munich, Hamburg, Luxembourg and Hannover get to experience the special magic of Cirque du Soleil and the very best acrobatics, fantasy costumes and authentic live music: Varekai.

The adventure begins on top of a volcano, in the middle of a magical forest, in a seemingly endless enchanted landscape. A solitary young man floats from the sky - and the story commences. He meets wondrous creatures and experiences absurd and unconventional adventures. On the edge of time, in a place of boundless possibilities, all roads lead to Varekai, the magic formula for uniqueness.

Dominic Champagne's production is a tribute to nomadic souls, the traditional spirit of the circus and the passion of the ones who are looking for it. Varekai means "no matter where" in their language. Power and skills, courage and proficiency come together in breathtaking scenes of wild choreography, constant motion and dramatic music against a backdrop of dreamscapes.

At first, the pendulum of time takes the audience into the past, where they are met with Icarian games, water meteors and Georgian dancers, all of which are old and rare circus traditions. Next, the audience is catapulted into the future and greeted with revolutionary variations of acrobatic scenes, Russian swings and the triple trapeze.

The focus is on about fourteen acrobatic world-class performances of the kind you only see at Cirque du Soleil. The unique world of Varekai comes to life amidst an imaginary landscape, a symphony of lights and its very own soundtrack. The goal Cirque du Soleil have set for themselves is to resonate with their audience, to fire their imagination and challenge their senses, and the extraordinary fusion of acrobatics, music, dance and theater Varekai brings to the arena doubtlessly lives up to this goal.  

The magical world of Varekai, Cirque du Soleil's breathtaking arena production, achieves the impossible. The mysteries of the universe and human imagination are reflected in suspense-packed dream sequences of drama and action. In the fall of 2015, the breathtaking, colorful show brings the very best of acrobatics, fantasy costumes and live music to Vienna.

On top of a volcano, amidst a magical forest, lies an exceptional world. A colorful world where anything is possible. The world of Varekai.

A man floats from the sky. His parachute lets him gently land on the ground. He is alone. The story of Varekai commences: an adventure brimful with magical moments, surprising encounters and fantastic creatures. An adventure on the edge of time.

The word Varekai means "no matter where" or "anywhere" in the language of the Roma, the wanderers of the world. This production is a tribute to nomadic souls, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of the ones whose search leads them on the path to Varekai.
