I’m a total sucker for the steampunk art style. There’s something utterly mesmerizing about the brass knobs, spinning clocks and train whistles of the Victorian era, and I’m pleased to report that “Kurios” captures that feeling perfectly.
You’ll see giant, 750-pound mechanical hands crawl onstage, acrobats riding rusty bikes upside down, and a man in accordion pants waddle around as “Kurios” whisks you away to whimsical industrial universe. And typical Cirque fashion, the hidden live band steals the show.
Be sure to catch Kurios in Atlanta before Christmas Day, when they pack up the big tent and head to London.
