The incredible feats of acrobatics that make up Cirque du Soleil's Varekai were inspired by an accident that left its creator, Dominique Champagne, with two broken legs.Champagne walked again following his accident and that is the main inspiration of the show".Standing to the left of the stage she explained the details of putting together a performance of this magnitude with a set as grand as it is intricate. One hundred people came together in order to realize Champagne's vision, including 50 stage performers and 50 support staff. The cast and crew had just returned from a five week break and have been busy rehearsing and constructing the stage since landing in Lebanon Saturday. There's little evidence of stress or nerves among the team as they have been performing the show for the past eight years. Kieran Bourke, 27, is living out his dream performing on the Russian Swing with Cirque du Soleil.Bourke went on to send an audition video to Cirque du Soleil and was accepted as a performer.Damaa is confident that the performance will be well received and will inspire those who attend.
