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.
The first Cirque du Soleil show I saw was Saltimbanco in the early 90s. I was hooked. The show was so unique and I couldn’t stop thinking and talking about it to friends and family. I’ve been to many Cirque du Soliel shows since then, across the country and overseas. Each show offers a unique storyline with the familiar Cirque style of athleticism, skill, art, and beauty. There truly is a magical quality to these shows. Mystery, emotion and plenty of those “ooh” and “ahh” moments. I cannot wait to see Quidam on opening night. I’m interested to see how the show will lend itself in an arena setting.
