Cirque Du Soleil to present Quidam in Charlotte, NC!
Have you seen them before? I haven’t, so excitement is very much so in the air at our house.
I did a little research and learned that Quidam is a thrilling combination of acrobatic artistry, technical expertise, extravagant design and exceptional musical inspiration. No doubt it sounds like my type of entertainment!
Here’s more notes from the show:
Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world – the world of Quidam – where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.
Quidam: a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the “quidam” whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons – a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity.
Watch it live next month!
