Cirque du Soleil comes to Vancouver with QUIDAM

Last year we were treated to the spectacular show of Cirque du Soleil's KOOZA. This year Cirque du Soleil brings us eight performances of its breath taking newest show: QUIDAM.

March 9 to 13 Vancouver's Roger's Arena will be transformed into a circus spectacular. QUIDAM had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters.

“Quidam (pronounced 'key-dam') is a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner,  a person rushing past. It could be anyone or anybody; someone coming, going, living in our anonymous society; a member of the crowd, one of the silent majorities; the one who cries  out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the 'quidam' that Cirque du Soleil is celebrating.”
