Cirque du Soleil: Kurios – Cabinet Of Opportunities

Cirque du Soleil will return to Australia from October this year with its most acclaimed touring show, Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities™. Written and directed by Michel Laprise, Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible. In this kingdom set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, reality is quite relative indeed as our perception of it is utterly transformed.

Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities had its world premiere in Montréal on April 2014 and since its debut, the criticsa cross North America have been giving it high marks: "It is not to be missed on any account," said Chris Jones in The Chicago Tribune. "Kurios is the most enthralling, consistently over-the-top magical show Cirque du Soleil has sent our way in a long time," raved Robert Hurwitt in The San Francisco Chronicle. "Kurios is the most joyous piece of theater I’ve seen in years and it will lift your spirits to the stars," said Richard Ouzounian in The Toronto Star. And Misha Berson in The Seattle Times raved, "Kurios thrills in a splendidly captivating new show." The Los Angeles Times made it a Critic’s Choice.
 
In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels lying underneath the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes. In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden world—a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor, his curios bounce to life one by one before his very eyes.
