^ I saw Kurios a few weeks ago. While its not my favorite as far as story goes, it had some great acts. Including one act that lets just say used a candlestick very clever. Any cirque fan will enjoy this show.

We saw KURIOS two nights ago. And it was wonderful! So different than a lot of the other Cirque shows.
Lots of copper and brass colours in the set design and a lot of the costumes, too. I loved the whole steampunk
look of it, with all the gadgets and characters moving around the set.

And yes ^^ that act with the "candlestick" was totally freeky! When "the upper half" of the act appeared, you could
hear everybody in the audience suddenly realizing what was going on. And start screaming disbelief. Awesome act!

My least favourite act was the female bicyclist doing her act "in mid air." Didn't jive with all of the rest of the
performers, in my opinion. She looked like she was an audience participant, definitely looking like a "tourist." But
not part of the entirety of the production design, if that makes sense. I thought she was just stuck into the show.

I also figured out I've seen 10 productions of Cirque! Together, me and David have seen nine of them. The 10th Cirque show
for me, was ZED, which I saw in Tokyo at Tokyo Disneyland, before they (sadly) shuttered the show, in late 2011.

P.S. I ALSO had the golden fortune to be included in one of the pre-show "sketches" that the wandering clowns do,
before the show actually starts! I got picked out by one of the "scientists" (?) who noticed me in my very colourful Disneyland
t-shirt
. He first had me stand up and show the shirt off for the crowd, then he "put me to bed" with a HUGE pillow over (poor) David's head,
a snood on my head (look it up kids), and a very big blanket. Then one of those baby mobiles was installed above my head. Awesome!
I went along with it all, snoring and falling asleep, then trying to wake up without "him" seeing me. Fun comedy to be a part of.
I definitely had some of the audience close to us enjoying it.

Then I got to add to that first part, just before Act 2 started! Another clown "scientist" was working through the audience. I immediately
told David, "if he comes this way, I'm, going to hit your shoulder with my head. Go along with it." And it did indeed happen. So the other
"scientist" woke me up, and the crowd loved it!

I even got compliments on my way out, with those saying they had no idea I wasn't an actual part of the show! Very cool to hear. :)

Also one of our fave acts in KURIOS. The mechanical hand was pretty cool to see, "walking."

^ The last actual ice show I saw, was back in June 2006, with the first TPR Tour, to the UK.
It was called "Hot Ice" and tix were given to us as a perk from Blackpool, where we were.
Of course, most of everybody didn't like it that much, but I got a kick out of it, especially
all of the music written for it. I got the cd as a "souvenir" of the show.

So, maybe this is another "ice show" I need to see, lol. Thanks for the review and photos, Bert.

Cirque's CORTEO is coming back to Vancouver this fall. This was the fourth touring show we saw in Vancouver, several years back.
But - they won't have Le Chapiteau along. It's going to be in the Coliseum where we saw their arena production of Toruk/Avatar.

So, we're probably not going, having seen it before in their tent. :sad: It's just not the same without being in Le Chapiteau as well.

But anybody locally who hasn't seen it, might be interested in seeing it here, or somewhere else along it's touring schedule.
