Circus as we all know is an old form of public entertainment the world have enjoyed before the birth of TV, radio, movies and internet into our consciousness about entertainment. It is a form of public entertainment with the combination of acrobatic stunts, beyond human normal stunts and activities and exotic and out-of-this world creatures and animal props. It is an old form of live entertainment that still have clamor on the public.
This June and July, the Philippines will witness a world-class circus performance at Rizal Park wherein the Filipinos will witness a combination of acrobatic stunts, circus drama and world-class choreography and circus music from the famous Quebec circus company – Cirque du Soleil, for the first time. The world-class circus presentation is entitled “Varekai”.
Varekai is a circus story that tells the adventures of a young man that descended from the sky into the world searching for a place or realm called “Varekai”. Thus, the circus presentation that will be performed at Rizal Park this coming June and July is somewhat theater-like circus performances and presentation that is not yet seen on the Philippines by Filipinos on their homeland but can only be witness abroad or outside the Philippines.
