Cirque Du Soleil - Costa Rica
Varekai pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition
Cirque Du Soleil is coming to Costa Rica to perform May 31st through June 15th with their multifaceted creative force known as 'Varekai'. Varekai includes acrobatic performances, acting, art from around the world, imaginary worlds, dance, daring, dexterity and grace. Varekai pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition. Cirque Du Soleil was built on values and convictions which rest on a foundation of creativity, imagination, audacity and most importantly, its people. They strive to take adventure to new heights and a step beyond what most feel is possible. Cirque Du Soleil has some of the greatest creative minds, craftsmen, and performance experts collaborating on various projects. This abundance of skill allows them to recreate themselves with each new show and their trip to Costa Rica will be no different.
The idea behind Cirque Du Soleil started in the 1980s in the small town Baie-Saint-Paul, located in Quebec. A group of young jugglers, stilt walkers, dancers, fire breathers, and musicians were brought together by Giles Ste-Croix. This team impressed the locals so much that they invited Cirque Du Soleil to perform in 1984 at the 450th anniversary celebration of the discovery of Canada. From that moment forward, Cirque Du Soleil has been performing around the world.
A Good Citizen
Cirque Du Soleil strives to be a good world citizen and has been involved in programs to fight poverty and help the world's youth. They believe that a good citizen contains a great attitude of social responsibility. Cirque Du Soleil contributes time and energy to make the world a better place. One of their main philanthropic causes is 'One Drop', which raises awareness of water related issues around the world.
Costa Rica can expect a fantastic show that includes, aerial hoops, aerial straps, clown acts, the flight of Icarus, Georgian dance, hand balancing on canes, Icarian games, juggling, Russian swings, slippery surface, solo on crutches, triple trapeze, and water meteors. My Guide Costa Rica is excited Cirque Du Soleil is coming to paradise.
