While Cirque du Soleil, the very popular, award-winning entertainment company, continues its triumphant tours throughout the world, this enchanting book transports the reader to the mystical world of its latest production, Varekai(TM). There, in the shadows of a magical forest populated by fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in a wondrous adventure in which anything is possible. Varekai--which means "wherever" in the Romany language of the Gypsies--pays tribute to a universe of infinite possibilities through an explosive fusion of drama and acrobatics captured here in the dazzling photography of Veronique Vial. With its breathtaking feats of stage wizardry, evocative music, and otherworldly sets, Cirque du Soleil has revolutionized the very concept of live performance, presenting its shows in more than 130 cities to over 33 million enthralled fans. Anyone who has ever fallen under cirque du Soleil's spell will welcome this paean to the nomadic soul.
