Varekai re-imagines the end of the Flight of Icarus, plunging him not into the ocean depths, but into a world of wondrous beings and beautiful forest. Wounded, he is cared for and slowly led by magical beings into realising new realities.
Cirque du Soleil: Varekai travels the world over. It has been shown in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg as well as the U.S., in cities like Boston and Nashville.
Varekai has been on tour since 2002.The cast numbers around 50 players who represent roughly 25 different nations. Additionally, another 50 support staff work with another 80-100 temporary workers to staff each run. Varekai is a huge undertaking and its success has resulted in over 6 million spectators witnessing over 4,000 performances.
The cast changes frequently due to the scope of the show and tour. However, main characters remain the same. Icarus is the star, lost in the forest and lost in love with The Betrothed. She is an enchanted creature who, while leading Icarus to growth, is changed herself by the process. The Skywatcher is a strange creature bent on the invention of new things and the interpretation of obscure signs. He is both a scientist and seer. The Guide is beyond elderly. Centuries old, the years obvious on his meager frame, he is at once a steadying influence and the catalyst for change.
