Cirquesa Dreamquest blends an inspiring storyline with world-class artistry to tell the story of a young boy who embarks on a fantasy quest. The adventure begins when a boy, Michael, has a dream where his mother returns to fulfill her promise to take him to an amazing spectacle of acrobatics. As the production unveils, the child receives pieces of a magic puzzle from the characters who teach him the life lessons of balance, strength, courage and fun. At the end of the journey, Michael solves the mystery of the puzzle pieces through a revealing and insightful self-discovery that could only be told through the artistry and amazement of a live performance. The production features a wide variety of innovative displays including acrobatics, trapeze, aerial ballet, comedy and daredevilry featuring artists from all around the world. Fun for the whole family! « less
