Cirque du Soleil will return to Australia from October this year with its most acclaimed touring show, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™. KURIOS will premiere under Cirque du Soleil’s Signature Big Top on 2 October 2019 in Sydney before opening in Brisbane from January 10, 2020.
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 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 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 humour, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.
KURIOS is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since 1984, written and directed by Michel Laprise. The newest big top production to tour Australia arrives with a cast of 47 artists from 17 countries, including world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, hand-puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians.
KURIOS will open in Brisbane on Friday, January 10, 2020 at Northshore Hamilton. Tickets start at $80 and are available from 9am Monday, March 18 via Cirque du Soleil’s website or by calling 1800 036 685.
