A world called Varekai. From the sky falls a soli­tary young man, and the story of Varekai be­gins. 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. The word Varekai means “wher­ever” in the Ro­many lan­guage of the gyp­sies- the univer­sal wan­der­ers. This pro­duc­tion pays trib­ute to the no­madic soul, to the spirit and art of the cir­cus tra­di­tion and to the in­fi­nite pas­sion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai. 239- 948- 7825, ger­mainarena.com
