KURIOS Cabinet of Curiosities is touring in Vancouver until December 31st at Concord Pacific Place and you can’t miss the big blue and yellow tent. The show depicts 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. The name of the show refers to the humble and strange characters that inhabit the Seeker’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
From the beginning of the show, we stepped 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.
Each act was mesmerizing and I couldn’t look away as it was mind bending. The human body is amazing and the ability of all the performers is A+. I’ve seen a few Cirque shows travelling across Canada and some in Vegas, but so far, this is one of my favourites.
I would highly recommend this show if you haven’t seen it yet. Since the tent isn’t very large, even the further seats have good views. It’s only in Vancouver until December 31st, so don’t wait. Watch it with friends and family over the holidays.
