Cirque's KURIOS Brings Magic To Atlanta
Photos and Review by Danielle Boise
Spectacular, Spectacular! After a lengthy hiatus, the big top is back at Atlantic Station with the spellbinding production of Cirque du Soleil’s KURIOS; a steampunk inspired world filled wonder and awe. This is an absolutely gorgeous production that the audience gets to emerge themselves into. From the lighting design to stunning makeup; but what makes a Cirque show so entertaining is watching the cast perform feats of human strength with precise precision.
Whether it’s contortionists, acrobats, juggling, or jumping through the air the cast will take your breath away. The music accompaniment is ethereal and magical, as it draws you into a world trapped inside of single one minute of time. This minute is the landscape of KURIOS and it keeps the audience completely enthralled with what’s going to happen next.
At the premiere on Thursday, October 6, there were plenty of “ohhhs”, “ahhhs,” and cheering throughout the entire production. And a most well-deserved standing ovation at the end.
KURIOS will be running through December 24, so grab your tickets while you still can. This is a show you do not want to miss.
