Icarus is the main character of Varekai, who falls to the ground, breaking his legs as he does. He is suddenly in a strange, new world full of creatures he has never seen before. "Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered." Assisted by the strange and quirky La Vigie, he works on regaining his strength and finding his way, his desire being to fly again. While on the ground, he meets The Betrothed, an underground, insect-like creature who he falls in love with. The two have barely met when she is kidnapped. Having already lost his love, Icarus must also find a way to see her again and conquer the obstacles in his path, continuing his quest through Varekai. Written by
It's amazing!! I've no words to describe it! I think is the best actuation of Cirque du Soleil!!!
I bought the Special DVD for Collectors and the Special Edition Soundtrack and you don't imagine the times i've seen it and heard it!!! Is absolute amazing!!
The story, the songs, the acts, the performers... no words to describe such beauty and passion!!
I've seen the "Cirque du Soleil - Fire within".. is like a "making of" or "behind the cameras"... its impressionant how they deal with the situation... all that pressure... one number had to be performed but the director said it wasn't ready so he called to a Mexican malabarist... i saw the number which was replaced and i think its very good!!! and the number of Mexican malabarist i though it wasn't very good and has nothing which links it to the story of Varekai...
Excepting that, Varekai is perfect!!! I've never saw something so good since Alegria!!
Congratulations to Cirque du Soleil and their cast :)
