Best of February performance: Cirque are back!

Time to plan the nights out in February

Cirque du Soleil: Quidam
18-23 Feb; Forum, Frederiksberg; tickets 475kr; cirquedusoleil.com 

Discover Zoe, a girl who feels unhappy and unwanted by a family too busy to notice their child’s sadness. 

She finds refuge in the imaginary world of Quidam, the only place where she can be herself. 

Quidam is a magical world where real friendship is valued, where dreaming is allowed and encouraged, where everything is possible and you can celebrate your individuality.  

Since its premiere in 1996, Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam has been delighting audiences all over the world. Prepare to be carried away!
