CIRQUE DU SOLEIL ANNOUNCES FINAL EXTENSION to the BRISBANE SEASON OF

KURIOS – CABINET OF CURIOSITIES – TO 23 FEBRUARY 2020

Premieres 10 January 2020 under a brand new white-and-grey Big Top at Northshore Hamilton

Brisbane 17 November 2019 – Due to overwhelming demand, Cirque du Soleil announced today the extension of performances in Brisbane of its most acclaimed touring show to date, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™. New performances from 9 February through the 23 February go on sale starting 10am THIS Monday. Tickets are available via cirquedusoleil.com/kurios or by phone at 1800 036 685.

KURIOS will premiere under a brand-new white-and-grey Big Top on 10 January 2020 at Northshore Hamilton. Written and directed by Michel Laprise, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities is 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.

Since its debut, critics across North America, Japan and Singapore have been raving about KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities. In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a scientist (“The Seeker”) is convinced that there exists a hidden world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. Out of his curio cabinet steps an international cast of 47 artists from 17 countries, a collection of otherworldly characters made up of world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, hand-puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians. Together they turn the Seeker’s steampunk world upside-down as they are guided by an energetic gypsy jazz, electro swing soundtrack. KURIOS is Cirque du Soleil’s 35thproduction since 1984.

** And two of the artists in KURIOS are Queenslander superstar trampolinists Fletcher Donohue and Nathan Dennis!
