The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) is about the adventure of Icarus. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins.

Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary.

Like all Cirque du Soleil productions, Varekai brings amazing death defying acts of human amazement that will leave you breathless in your seat.
