SOUL-SEARCHING CIRCUS: Out dancer, aerialist and Toronto native Joey Arrigo plays the main character, Waz, in “Volta,” the new touring production from Cirque du Soleil. “We pushed the boundaries of where we’re going to take our storyline,” Arrigo said of the show. “Volta tries to take a storyline that is in the present day and relatable to anybody watching. What we really wanted to stress was a message of self-acceptance and self-love.” Catch “Volta” through Aug. 5 at Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, 100 Station Ave., Oaks.
