The Cirque du Soleil in Barcelona
Until 02 January, the Cirque du Soleil is setting up shop in Barcelona with Varekai, a spectacular which offers a reinterpretation of the Icarus myth and pays tribute to the nomadic spirit of circus artists. The Grand Chapiteau, the Canadian circus company's spectacular big tent, will become a magical forest full of fantastic creatures.
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.
The word Varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. 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.
Varekai features down-tempo, chill-out house music with a Latin flavour, inspired by the 2002 production of Varekai.
