Cirque du Soleil delivers their best show in years!
From the moment Kurios begins, the audience is transported into a steampunk dream, celebrating the amazing – curious even – abilities of the human body.
As ever with Cirque du Soleil, the storyline serves more as an ambitious concept to tie together the acts into a theme, rather than giving any narrative certainty. However, who needs to know the finer story points when there are men and women flying metres and metres into the air, and gasp provoking feats of balance and daring?
Viewers will be delighted with traditional and eccentric acts, from juggling, aerials, and trampolining, to a man who has spent a suspicious amount of time perfecting the use of a yoyo. Every act has been staged with whimsy and the costumes and make-up suspend the sense of reality and transform the performers into sea creatures and characters from an industrial revolution hallucination. The acts are tied together with clowning and audience interaction that directs the audience's attention and adds to the atmosphere of fun.
