Last week, Christine and I went to go see Cirque Du Soliel’s Kurios. We’d been meaning to see it for a while, but we finally decided to buy our tickets when we found out our friend, Black, was a featured performer in the show.
I think Kurios is my favorite Cirque show yet. Not that I’ve seen them all, but how can you beat a steampunk Cirque show? It was like a theatrical version of Bioshock. Afterwards, Black gave us a tour of the backstage area, a smaller tent just behind the main tent. The show had just ended and a dozen of the performers had piled up in front of a large screen tv to watch their peformance from that night. Black says that many of the performers, in particular the acrobats, study the show each night to see what they could have done better. Total professionals.
