Varekai by Cirque du Soleil

In honour of its 25th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil will bring a London favourite –the awe-inspiring Varekai –to the Royal Albert Hall. Having amazed audiences with Quidam during its last visit to the capital, the spectacular Cirque du Soleil is set to enthral crowds again with its much-loved Varekai. The word Varekai means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies – and this show promises to take any viewer wherever they dream. 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. From the sky falls a solitary young man and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered. This production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai.

Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai is at the Royal Albert Hall until February 14, 2010.

Address: Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, London, SW7
Tickets: start at £20
