CIRQUE DU SOLEIL COMES TO MANILA
Sometimes, the Philippines gets the most randomly cool things happening in it. For the first time ever, the internationally acclaimed Cirque du Soleil will be performing in Manila- from June 22 to July 8.
The 50 performers from 23 countries representing the Quebec based “human circus” company will present Varekai, which is a story of the adventures of a young man who came from the sky and the quest he is on in a world called Varekai.
I have been watching Cirque du Soleil performance in different cities around the world since the 1980’s and each one transports me through time and place to somewhere where the imaginary and impossible become real. A surreal mix of drama with acrobatics, the combination of acrobatic stunts, surreal costumes, innovative music and vivid choreography is nothing short of magical. I am very excited that the Philippines will get a chance to see what I have always said can only be “experienced, not described.” It will without a doubt leave everyone happily lost in the land of imagination.
The performance will be held at the Luneta, across the Quirino Grandstand in Manila, and tickets are available at www.hoopla.ph or www.cirquedusoleil.com.
