Cirque du Soleil presents KURIOS at Atlantic Station

When my oldest graduated from high school and went off to college, I quickly realized just how much I had not done with him or my younger babies.  I realized that we had missed out on many opportunities to show our kids the world of arts.  Of course we did lots of things like vacationing at the beach, traveling to the mountains, going to lots of sporting events, and many kid friendly events like Chuck E Cheese and more.  Unfortunately, taking time to let them experience all the different types of art was something we missed.  In an effort to expose my children to everything I could, we started going to the art museums, botanical gardens, symphonies, and theaters.  One of our favorites, hands down, would have to be the Cirque du Soleil shows.  They are absolutely stunning and something that everyone, kids included, should experience!  No two shows are alike.

KURIOScharacters

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 that lie just below the surface, we must rst learn to close our eyes. In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible 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 in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.
What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?

 

ABOUT THE SHOW
KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since 1984. 
Cabinets of curiosities are the ancestors of museums, also known as cabinet of wonder in the Renaissance Europe. Aristocrats, members of the merchant class and early practitioners of science formed collections of historical relics, works of
art or mysterious travel souvenirs or artefacts.
KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities has a cast of 46 artists from 15 different countries.
About 60% of the artists have already worked with Cirque du Soleil before.

10 Curious Facts About the Show

 

To make the Accordion Man’s attire, the costume-maker spent an entire week sewing inside the costume.

Antanina Satsura, the artist who plays Mini Lili, is 3.2 feet tall and weighs 39 pounds. She is one of the 10 smallest people in the world.

The mechanical hand weighs 750 pounds and measures 15 feet by 6.8 feet.

More than a hundred costumes were created to dress the cast of KURIOS.

There are 426 props in the show, the most of any production in Cirque du Soleil’s history.

Some 65 trucks transport close to 2,000 tons of equipment for KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities.

The 116 tour members come from 22 different countries. Some have been touring with Cirque du Soleil for more than 20 years.

This is the first time that Cirque du Soleil presents a welcoming act on top of the big top before the show starts. When weather permits, 3 artists climb up the big top and greet the guests from above while playing music and acting. Guests get a taste of the KURIOS experience as soon as they enter the site.

It took the team of props makers approximately 250 hours to build Mr. Microcosmos’ round belly.

All performers are responsible for applying their own make-up every show, which can take them between 40 minutes to two hours.
