Cirque du Soleil: KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities
Cirque du Soleil will return to Brisbane as part of a national tour from January next year with its most acclaimed touring show, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™.
KURIOS will premiere under their Signature Big Top on January 10, 2020. Written and directed by Michel Laprise, KURIOS is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop. Set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, KURIOS is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible.
A “Seeker” and his larger-than-life curio cabinet, is convinced that there exists a hidden world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. And, in a grand spectacle of Steampunk-inspired adventures, 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 humour, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.
Featuring an extraordinary cast of 47 artists from 17 different countries including world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, hand-puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians. Magnificently costumed and styled, KURIOS is a must-see for 2020, and is a whole new world of Cirque du Soleil.
