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.
A “KURIOS” EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER
Critically acclaimed the world over, KURIOS—Cabinet of curiosities astonishingly revisits the signature Cirque du Soleil style of performance by weaving jaw-dropping acrobatics with a refreshing touch of poetry, artistry and humor. A mind-boggling escape from reality, KURIOS unveils a festive, steampunk-inspired universe where the unexpected lies at every corner.
In an alternate yet familiar past, KURIOS steps inside the mechanical lab of an inventor convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world—a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. Once the inventor succeeds to unlock the door to this world of wonders, time comes to a complete stop and an uplifted cast of otherworldly characters invades his curio cabinet, bringing his makeshift creations to life one by one. As the visible becomes invisible and perspectives transform, KURIOS bursts into a celebration of the power of the imagination.
Premiered in Montreal in 2014, KURIOS has mesmerized over 4.5 million spectators in 30 cities worldwide with over 2,000 performances brought to life by its cast of 49 world-class artists.
