Cirque Du Soleil has taken inspiration from the language of the gypsies for its latest colourful adventure of acrobatics and dance.

The word Varekai (pronounced ver-ay-kie) means "wherever" in the Romany language and this magical tale is billed as taking families on a journey to "wherever".



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.

The story is set in the mysterious world of Varekai, a world deep within a forest atop a volcano where anything is possible. To kick off the story, a solitary young man falls from the sky and the audience follows him as he makes a journey discovering an array of fantastical creatures.



This is the first UK arena tour for the production, which has been updated to include new acts.

Cirque Du Soleil will perform Varekai in the UK from February in Sheffield before heading to Dublin, Newcastle and Leeds.

It then continues to Birmingham, Nottingham and Glasgow until March 19.



Cirque du Soleil began life in Quebec, Canada, as a group of 20 street performers in 1984, but gained fame for its acrobatic feats around the world. The company now has 4,000 employees, including more than 1,300 performing artists in nearly 50 different countries.
