We’ve seen Cirque du Soleil twice in Atlanta. Believe me when I say their acrobatic performances boggle the mind. One lucky reader will win a Family Four Pack of tickets to the Thursday, April 21 performance of Kurios™ at Atlantic Station in Atlanta, GA! To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post.

Kurios™ – Cabinet of Curiosities

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 curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?

About the Show

KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since 1984.

Cabinets of curiosities are the ancestors of museums, also known as cabinet 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.

KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities has a cast of 46 artists from 15 different countries. About 60% of the artists have already worked with Cirque du Soleil.
