Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production, Kurios has been wowing audiences coast to coast since its debut in 2014. This exhilarating production delivers equal doses of wonder, excitement, suspense, and fun.
Kurios is set for a limited engagement run in D.C. until September 18, so now is the time to make plans to be wowed by the latest production from the creative masterminds at Cirque du Soleil.
Set to a toe-tapping, 30s-era jazz score, and featuring a lovely set design and exciting costumes, Kurios is a clever tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible.
The name of the show refers to the humble and strange characters that inhabit the Seeker’s Cabinet of Curiosities. Kurios is an inspired blend of unusual curiosity acts and stunning acrobatic prowess from Cirque du Soleil.
Powered by a talented troupe of artist-athletes, Kurios delivers memorable thrills start to finish – jugglers, trapeze artists, tumblers and aerial acts perform in impressively choreographed and fast-paced routines.
The exquisitely produced show is a dazzling and theatrical 2 ½ hour (+ intermission) presentation that wows the imagination – and further underscores Cirque du Soleil’s creative innovation, visual proof of an artistic team constantly striving for originality and expression.
Highlights of Kurios include:
• An acrobat jumps on her acrobatic bicycle suspended in midair and hangs on in a variety of positions — on the handlebar stem or on the wheel, by a foot or by an arm.
• 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.
• Let’s not forget the wild, chair-balancing act; incredible acrobats perform a one-armed, gravity-defying routine atop wobbly chairs stacked onto a table.
Those are just a few of the highlights you’ll see in Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios; there are 12 separate acts total, so prepare for lots of thrills!
For visitors to D.C. looking to change things up after a day of visiting monuments and memorials, Kurios is a perfect entertainment option. D.C. locals, too, can turn off the political chatter for a few hours and enjoy the amazing Cirque team in action.
