Cirque du Soleil announces that its newest arena show, Varekai, will perform in Newark at Prudential Center from Aug. 27 to 31, for seven performances only. After 11 years of touring the world under the blue and yellow Big Top, Varekai has begun a new adventure this past December touring the world in arenas and in some markets never visited before.

About Varekai
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.
