Cirque du Soleil Kurios
In these three decades, the company’s various productions have been seen by close to a hundred and fifty million people around the world. Cirque Du Soleil’s repertoire includes renowned shows like Kà, Amaluna, Michael Jackson: One, Totem, Criss Angel Believe, Zumanity and many others. These shows have won the company prestigious accolades like Drama Desk Awards, Primetime Emmy Awards and numerous other awards for choreography, props, costumes and set.
Kurios is one of the most critically acclaimed shows to hail from the Cirque Du Soleil camp. The show follows the story of an inventor, The Seeker, who ventures to find the place where the impossible meets the possible. The Seeker, like many scientists of his age, accidentally stumbles upon a discovery. However, his discovery defies the laws of science, reality, space and time and takes him to the impossibly beautiful land of the cabinet of curiosities. The cabinet introduces him to characters such as Nico the Accordian Man, Mr. Microcosmos and his unconscious mind, Klara the Telegraph of the Invisible and the Kurios robots. The entire show celebrates the diversity, creativity and brilliance of the human imagination.
The show includes various acts, which include everything from aerial straps to body contortions, from net maneuvers to teeterboards, from acrobatic performances to juggling and from aerial hoops to tightropes. Once the cabinet of curiosities opens, we see acts from its different realms. One of which is The Chaos Synchro 1900 where passengers from a train disembark on a 19th century train station. The passengers then dance to a timeless piece of choreography.
The Russian Cradle Duo springs to life after an electric discharge. The couple performs amazing human trapeze acts where the strongman flings his porcelain face doll partner into the air. The miniature Invisible Circus is presented by an oddball ringmaster who directs acts from teeterboard. From high diving to riding a unicycle on a tightrope, the show has it all.
Another act within Kurios is Contortion, where electric eels from the cabinet of curiosity spring to life and perform body contortions using mechanical hand as their platform. Upside Down World involves amazing feats of balancing and features an act that is literally performed upside down. As everyone is busy in the Seeker’s lab, they look up and realize that they have an exact double in a parallel universe doing the exact thing that they’re doing. When both universes realize each other’s existence, a race to compete with the other begins and forms a brilliant act.
Rola Bola is where the audience meets a fearless Aviator who balances himself atop his small propeller plane while it revolves and swings like a pendulum on the stage. In Acro Net, undersea creatures jump into the big top, as the net trampolines the performers high into the air.
The famous show Kurios is out on its North American tour. It will be stopping at major cities in Canada and the US. Under the famed yellow and blue Grand Chapiteau, the skillful performers of Cirque Du Soleil will create a stunning world where the deviated indulgences of the Seeker come alive. So grab Cirque Du Soleil Kurios tickets and get the chance to experience a wonderful amalgamation of theatrics and circus acts.
