Cirque du Soleil Quidam in Abbotsford

Comments 161 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Cirque du Soleil is bringing their critically-acclaimed production Quidam to Abbotsford this month for eight performances at the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre.


Cirque du Soleil performances dazzle audiences around the globe and Quidam’s 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.

Quidam will be in Abbotsford from August 29 to September 2, 2012 with evening performances and there will be matinées on Friday (August 31st), Saturday (September 1st), and Sunday (September 2nd). The only other tour stops in BC for this mesmerizing production are in Kelowna, Kamloops, and Victoria.
