Come 5 July, Cirque du Soleil opens its most acclaimed touring show to date called, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™ in Singapore.
KURIOS premiers under a new grey-and-white Big Top on Bayfront Avenue, next to Marina Bay Sands.
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.
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 world upside-down guided by an energetic gypsy jazz, electro swing soundtrack.
