Cirque du Soleil rehearses for 'Quidam' at Jordan Center

September 14, 2011

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Cirque du Soleil performers rehearsed today (Sept. 14) at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center in preparation for the opening of 'Quidam,' which opens tonight at the venue on the University Park campus. Cirque De Soleil will present seven performances at the Bryce Jordan Center from Sept. 14 to Sept. 17.

The internationally recognized acrobats, musicians and characters of Cirque du Soleil will present "Quidam" from Sept. 14 to Sept. 17 at the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State's University Park campus. "Quidam" is the story of a young girl who has lost the meaning to her life. Seeking to fill the void, she falls into an imaginary world where she meets a variety of fascinating characters who encourage her to free her soul. As with all Cirque du Soleil shows, "Quidam" provides audiences with a daringly creative and stimulating performance full of music, acrobatic strength, and stimulating lights and costumes.

The show has toured worldwide and has been presented on five continents to over a million people since its premiere in 1996.

Tickets are available at the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office or by calling 814-865-5555. For photos from today's rehearsal, visit online. Go to for more information about this and other performances coming to the Bryce Jordan Center.
