Cirque du Soleil acrobats eat to stay fit


The Montreal-based circus arts company brings its “Varekai” production to Sprint Center for seven shows Wednesday through Sunday, with evening performances Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and two shows Saturday and Sunday.

Varekai means “wherever” in the Romany language of gypsies, Cirque says. In the show, a solitary man begins an adventure after parachuting into a forest of fantastical creatures. The production “pays tribute to the nomadic soul.”
