Cirque Du Soleil: Fire Within / Varekai (2 Pack)
The 2003 winner of the Emmy for Outstanding Nonfiction Program (Alternative), this 13-episode television series offers an intimate look into the dreams, trials and aspirations of a core group of performers involved in the creation and launch of Varekai, the live production from Cirque Du Soleil Fire Within begins eight months prior to opening night when it remains to be seen how the performers, who have come from around the world, will survive the enormous physical and emotional demands placed upon them. Throughout the captivating series, cameras document the human experience - the drama and comedy, the victories and setbacks - and, above all, the desire to succeed that burns within these extraordinary individuals.
Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, there is an extraordinary world - a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.
From the sky falls a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary.
