Photos: Here are shots from Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai

With Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai tour just around the corner, here’s some mesmerising shots to give you a taste of things to come.

Cirque Du Soleil will be taking their signature production, Varekai, on the road across the UK next month. The visual spectacular will reach Sheffield Arena, Dublin’s 3Arena, Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena and Leeds’ First Direct Arena in February 2017, followed by the Genting Arena in Birmingham, Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena and The SSE Hydro, Glasgow in March 2017.

Inspired by the Romany word for “wherever” the 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.”

Cirque Du Soleil began back in 1984 with just 20 performers. Now spanning talent from 50 countries, the stunningly talented troupe includes 1300 performers and employs 4000 employees. It really is a sight to behold.
