Cirque Du Soleil KURIOS - Cabinet of Curiosities
Melbourne' Due to overwhelming demand, Cirque du Soleil announces today the extension of performances in Melbourne of its most acclaimed touring show to date, KURIOS ' Cabinet of Curiosities'.
Step into the curio cabinet of an ambitious inventor who defies the laws of time, space and dimension in order to reinvent everything around him. Suddenly, the visible becomes invisible, perspectives are transformed, and the world is literally turned upside down.
Deep-sea creatures that embody electric eels inside the Seeker's cabinet come to life in this stunning, fast-paced and fluid contortion act. The wriggling artists execute a series of incredible pyramids and figures at an astonishing pace using the Mechanical Hand as a platform.
The perfect handyman, Nico is a little shy, a tad awkward, and extremely sensitive. Nico's accordion costume allows him to bend way down or stand way up so he can be at eye level with absolutely everyone.
A fearless Aviator who happens to be an expert in the discipline of rola bola makes a soft, graceful landing in his small propeller plane, which he will use as a platform. Balanced on his impressive, tottering structure, the artist and his cylinders and planks rest on a platform built into a trapeze Washington. The suspended apparatus moves up and down and swings in a long pendulum motion - an incredible feat requiring an extraordinary sense of balance.
Klara can receive alpha waves by turning on her heels and pointing her hoop skirt in various directions. She has a language of her own and symbolizes our obsession with telecommunications during the golden age of the railroad when the telegraph and the gramophone were invented.
Upside Down World
Dinner guests are stunned by the telekinetic powers of one of their table companions who can make a chandelier suspended above their heads move. Another guest challenges him by piling up chairs in an attempt to reach the chandelier. All of a sudden, the group realizes that their exact double exists in a parallel universe right above them where the same scene is unfolding... but upside down!
An authority figure, Mr. Microcosmos is the leader of the group. This serious chap is the embodiment of technological progress; his world is sturdy and evokes the steam train, massive building structures, the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais. This is man as a microcosm, running on his own steam and traveling in his own self-contained, self-subsisting ecosystem. Full steam ahead!
Above a vast ocean, underwater creatures pirouette, bounce and rebound on a net that covers the entire stage. Their street-style performance is mixed with pure trampoline techniques.
These quirky, imperfect and dysfunctional robots are products of the unbridled imagination of their creator.
