Fusing the 3000-year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion toured worldwide for twenty years, drawing its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature.

PASTSHOWS_QUIDAM_600x195

Quidam had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. Since that time, the production has toured on five continents and been experienced by millions of people. The international cast features 46 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters. Unlike any other Cirque du Soleil show, Quidam does not take spectators to an imaginary realm of fanciful, larger-than-life characters. Rather, it is an examination of our own world – inhabited by real people with real-life concerns.
