‘Quidam’ debuts in Shanghai

Show will stay until end of August

Canada’s street performers turned circus empire Cirque du Soleil is making moves on China with the debut of its touring show “Quidam” in Shanghai.

The show, which opened Thursday, is playing in the purpose built Grand Chapiteau opposite the Science & Technology Museum in the city’s Pudong District.

“Quidam” (pronounced “key-dam”), Latin for a anonymous passer-by, tells the story of Zoe, a young girl who travels into an imagined world in search of meaning in her life.

Show, featuring more than 50 performers from 14 countries (including four from China), is one of Cirque’s six touring extravaganzas.

With its mix of dance, music and acrobatics, “Quidam” is well-suited to international audiences.

Cirque will stay in Shanghai until the end of August when the show will transfer to Mexico.
