‘Quidam’ debuts in Shanghai

Show will stay until end of August

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

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.
