Cirque du Soleil brings its arena show Quidam to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre beginning Aug. 29.

Cirque du Soleil’s production of Quidam comes to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre for eight performances from Aug. 29 to Sept. 2.

Dressed in electric costumes and vibrant face paint, the acrobat show has become a favourite for audiences around the world.

The production includes a cast of 52 acrobats, musicians, singers and characters, who tell the tale of a little girl who travels to the imaginary world of Quidam to escape a boring reality.

Quidam had its world premiere in Montreal 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 production, but now in arenas throughout North America.

Abbotsford shows are on Aug. 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m.; Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sept. 2 at 1 and 5 p.m.

Tickets range in price from $45 to $90, and children 12 and under are $36 to $73. Military members, seniors and students are $40.50 to $76.50.
