"KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities", Cirque du Soleil, Toronto, ON

Cirque du Soleil is in town with their production, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities.

Reality is Relative 

What if you could alter reality at will? Delve into a world of curiosity where seeing is disbelieving: the world of KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities from Cirque du Soleil®. The show immerses you in a mysterious and fascinating realm that disorients your senses and challenges your perceptions, leaving you to wonder: "Is it real, or just a figment of my imagination?" 

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 in a place that’s as beautiful as it is mysterious. 

KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities is an ingenious blend of unusual curiosity acts and stunning acrobatic prowess from Cirque du Soleil. Let KURIOS show you that anything is possible through the power of imagination.

The company I work for bought a bunch of tickets for tonight's performance and invited clients and companies we do business with.  I've never been to see Cirque before and got to go.  Yay!  I've heard it's awesome so I was looking forward to it.  The Toronto Star had given it 4/4 stars.

We had a reception before the show with cocktails and appetizers and there was a photographer taking pictures.  Here are me and Baljeet, my colleague (she and I met in the parking lot and came in together).

I had no idea what the story was about but that didn't matter ... the show was amazing.  There is a large cast and there is always something going on.  I didn't know what to expect and don't want to give anything away but there is lots of acrobatics, balancing, singing (the female singer, Eirini Tornesaki, has a great voice), clapping, laughs and more.

If you get a chance, you should check it out.  I'd gotten tickets for Gord and I to go in October and I'm glad I did because it's a great show and I'll be able to see all I miss tonight (as I said, there's always something going on).

I'm surprised at that, Teresa, since you live in Montreal.
