New Cirque Show Brings Fantastic World To Life-The story begins as Icarus falls from the sky -- and where he lands has thrilled and surprised audiences around the world.
The Cirque de Soleil show "Varekai" comes to Gwinnett Center for eight performances, July 29th through August 2nd.  So what is Varekai?  It's an imaginary world resting at the summit of a volcano, inhabited by incredible creatures.  As always, this world is brought to life through music, colorful costumes, and the incredibly talented performers who make up legendary Cirque de Soleil.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Gwinnett Center, getting a behind-the-scenes look at how the vivid world of Varekai comes to life.  For more click here.
