News release from the Cirque du Soleil:

Eight performances only from September 21 – 25 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum

Exclusive Discounted Tickets Available Online Now for Cirque Club Members

(April 26, 2011) – Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that its newest arena show, Quidam, will be performing in Fort Wayne from September 21 – 25, 2011 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum for eight performances only.

Advance discounted tickets for Quidam are available now online exclusively to Cirque Club members through May 1. Cirque Club membership is free and benefits includes access to advance tickets, special offers and exclusive behind the scenes information. To join, go to www.cirqueclub.com.

Tickets for the general public will be available starting May 2 at https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/about-us/our-shows or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

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. In December 2010, Quidam embarked on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but now in arenas throughout North America. The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters.

Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world—the world of Quidam—where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.

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.

Young Zo̩ is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world Рthe world of Quidam Рwhere she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.

Quidam: a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the “quidam” whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons—a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity
