A CABINET OF CURIOSITIES in Dallas
The iconic performing arts empire unveils its 35th full-scale production, Kurios, stopping in Grand Prairie this February. Taking on a distinctly steampunk theme, Kurios takes inspiration from the latter half of the 19th century, when railroads made travel more accessible, and inventions like the telegraph improved long-distance communications.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM KURIOS
Prepare to have your world turned completely upside down and to have your perceptions challenged, in this brand-new offering from Cirque du Soleil. The action takes place within a curio cabinet of an ambitious inventor, who defies the laws of time, space and physics in order to transform reality around him. Suddenly, the visible becomes intangible, perspectives are thrown out of balance, and his world is literally turned upside down in a place that's as beautiful as it is mysterious.
Marvel at the amazing feats of prowess on display; from aerial acrobatics, to steampunk clowns and contortionists, this is a darker side of Cirque du Soleil!
