Cirque du Soleil extends it's Melbourne season
Tickets are available via cirquedusoleil.com/kurios or by phone at 1800 036 685. KURIOS will premiere under a brand-new white-and-grey Big Top on 12 March 2020 at Flemington Racecourse.
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 realm set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, reality is quite relative indeed as our perception of it is utterly transformed.
Since its debut critics across North America, Japan and Singapore have been raving about KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities. In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a scientist (The Seeker) is convinced that there exists a hidden world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await.
Out of his curio cabinet steps an international cast of 47 artists from 17 countries - a collection of otherworldly characters made up of world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, hand-puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians. Together they turn the Seeker’s steampunk world upside-down as they are guided by an energetic gypsy jazz, electro swing soundtrack.
KURIOS is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since 1984. It is the newest big top production to tour Australia
Originally composed of 20 street performers in 1984, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group completely reinvented circus arts and went on to become a world leader in live entertainment.
