The legendary Cirque du Soleil is coming into town at January 1st 2016. Cancel all your plans for that day because you do not want to miss this show! The circus will perform their show Varekai at New Year’s Day of 2016. This performance will take place at Palau Sant Jordi and is the second of five stops of the circus in Spain. Before Cirque du Soleil will perform their show Varekai in Barcelona, they will stop at A Coruña. After the show in Barcelona the tour will continue to Valencia, Malaga and Vitoria-Gasteiz.
The show Varekai is not just a show, it’s an entire story that will be told and performed to the audience. It happens in an extraordinary world at the summit of a volcano, somewhere deep within a forest. This world is full of other creatures and there are many more possibilities. Varekai is the name of the show and it has a meaning in the ancient Roman language of the gypsies. It means “wherever” and this way the performance pays tribute to the nomads and to the spirit and the art of the circus tradition.
