Quidam constitutes a novelty in Cirque du Soleil’s long history. In contrast to the other shows of Cirque du Soleil, Quidam does not travel spectators in the island of fantasy; it deals with human world and everyday life.
The protagonist, little Zoe, is a girl who becomes the public’s guide in her attempt to escape from her life’s monotony. In her wandering, she has Quidam, an unknown passerby who is wandering the streets, as her companion. With Quidam’s help, Zoe manages to free her soul while Quidam tries to free all “Quidams” by taking them to his personal dream, a dream full of colours and music.
