Since its premiere in 2002, Cirque du Soleil’s Varekai has visited over 72 cities in 20 different countries across the world. Now, the critically-acclaimed production can mark another city off its ever growing list — the DC area’s very own Fairfax, Virginia!
Set deep within a forest at the summit of a volcano, Varekai follows the adventures of a solitary young man who parachutes from the sky. There he is met by a world of mystical creatures who dazzle the crowd with heart-stopping aerial performances and acrobatics that quite literally defy gravity.
Varekai: Tales of the Forest will be playing at the EagleBank Arena (formerly the Patriot Center) from July 22 – 26, 2015.
