VAREKAI: A cirque du soleil production
The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsiesâŽ¯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.
