KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities – has arrived in Atlanta.
This new Cirque du Soleil extravaganza is now playing at Atlantic Station from Thursday, March 3, through Sunday, March 8. Check out the trailer for KURIOS!
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 first 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 “curious” jump to life one by one.
KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since 1984. Cabinets of curiosities are the ancestors of museums, also known as the “cabinets 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. The show has a cast of 46 artists from 15 different countries. About 60% of the artists have already worked with Cirque du Soleil before.
The 116 tour members come from 22 different countries. Some have been touring with Cirque du Soleil for more than 20 years.
