Varekai, Cirque du Soleil, coming to Hidalgo State Farm Arena
This fall, Cirque du Soleil is returning to Hidalgo with one of its signature productions – Varekai. The seven performances will take place from December 6th to 10th, 2017 at the State Farm Arena. The jaw-dropping and mind-blowing Varekai showcases an acrobatic extravaganza which will take audiences on an extraordinary journey. Under the “theme of Icarus”, fans will see an amazing display of high level acrobatics and performers ready to accomplish perfectly skilled and gravity-defying feats.
All of Cirque du Soleil’s productions are unique, and Varekai is absolute proof of that. Piecing together all possible genres, arts, and disciplines – original music, costumes, set design, choreography, live vocals, video-art, and make-up solutions – at their heart, these shows maintain circus arts in all their manifestations, starting from street performances to high-tech and awe-aspiring aerial acts. This is how Cirque du Soleil invokes the imagination, provokes the senses, and evokes the emotions of people around the world.
The international cast of Varekai consists of 50 performers coming from 13 countries, including 6 musicians and two singers. In addition, there are 50 crew members on tour – coaches, performance medicine therapists, wardrobe employees, stage managers, technical specialists and administrative personnel – who support the tour on a daily basis.
