Sleight of head

The story of a neglected child who seeks solace in a fantasy life, Quidam is the ninth Cirque du Soleil production to take to the road after its inception in 1996. Originally branded by the image of a headless man holding an umbrella, the show is filled with extraordinary characters whose tricks range from simple illusion to acrobatically testing the limits of the human form, and is set to a live musical score. It’s a delightful modern circus and a surreal ode to imaginary friends.

Wednesday-Sunday 4/3-7 $45-95, John Paul Jones Arena, 295 Massie Rd. (888) 575-8497.
