{Family 4 Pack Giveaway} Cirque du Soleil KURIOS Atlanta

KURIOS

Cirque du Soleil is back in Atlanta with their  newest Big Top show, KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities.  KURIOS™ Cabinet of Curiosities will perform under the iconic blue and yellow big top at Atlantic Station March 3 – May 8.

This year we are in for a special treat for the first time ever Cirque du Soleil presents a welcoming act on top of the big top before the show starts.  When weather permits, 3 artists climb up the big top and greet the guests from above while playing music and acting. Guests get a taste of the KURIOS™ experience as soon as they enter the site.

About the show:

In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes.  In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world.  When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

History:

KURIOS™ – Cabinet of Curiosities is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since 1984. Cabinets of curiosities are the ancestors of museums, also known as cabinet of wonder in the Renaissance Europe. Aristocrats, members of the merchant class and early practitioners of science formed collections of historical relics, works of art or mysterious travel souvenirs or artifacts.

I took my mom and son to see OVO about 6 years ago now as a Christmas present. The great part about it was that all three generations were able to appreciate the show on a different level and enjoy spending time together.
