October 5-9th, 2011
Cirque du Soleil is coming to town with its newest arena show, Quidam, performing 7 shows at the Mullins Center at UMass in Amherst, MA, from October 5-9, 2011.
Hilltown Families is partnering with the Mullins Center and Cirque du Soleil to offer one lucky family a chance to win a family 4-pack of free tickets to see Quidam on opening night, Wednesday, October 5th at 7:30pm! Deadline to enter to win is 10/2/11 by 7pm (EST). Details on how to enter to win are below.
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: 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.
Quidam had its world premiere in Montreal, Canada 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.
Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to more than 100 million spectators in nearly 300 cities on five continents. For more information about Cirque du Soleil, visit www.cirquedusoleil.com.
