The Holiday Season is the most enchanting time of the year and Cirque du Soleil: Varekai fits the bill perfectly with its captivating storyline of an extraordinary world deep within a forest where anything is possible… the world of Varekai. Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world - a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekaibegins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind. The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies - the universal wanderers. Varekai enchants the crowd with its high-level acrobatics including Contortionists, Russian Swings, Aerial Straps and Skating Illusions. The Cirque performers give it their all with their perfectly-skilled and gravity-defying feats.

Varekai will be in Fort Worth from December 13 to December 17 presenting seven shows at the Fort Worth Convention Center Arena and will then move to the Frisco area from December 20 to December 23 presenting six performance at the Dr Pepper Arena for its final show and retirement after a 15-year run.
