Absolutely Stunning! Cirque du Soleil Presents Kurios at Dodger Stadium (January 24, 2016)

Prepare to enter a world of wonder and mystery. Kurios takes place in a steampunk retro future existence created by Cirque du Soleil. The costumes involved are incredibly well designed. Nico the Accordion Man can shrink extremely small and stand up very tall. In the contortion act, the women are dressed reminiscent of electric eels. They move in ways that would be easy for an eel but seem impossible for a human. Later, a woman bikes on to the stage and then proceeds to take off and fly above the audience. It’s a fantasy come true for anyone who has biked in city traffic. She then proceeds to swing all around the bicycle in fantastic fashion.

Another crowd pleaser is the Acro Net. It’s a net that stretches across the stage to create a giant trampoline. The performers are able to bounce each other up to a ladder hanging over 50 feet above the net. Then, hanging from the ladder, one performer is able to catch another. The extreme amount of precision that this feat requires is impressive.  It’s an incredibly stunning display of talent.

The act that will have you the most on the edge of your seat is Rola Bola. He balances on a stacked tower of cylinders on their side and upright and a plank that seems like it is constantly about to collapse. If this isn’t impressive enough, the platform then rises and begins to swing while he is still balancing. The audience watches with their mouths wide open in awe of this feat of extreme athletic balance.

Be wowed by Kurios now through February 7th at Dodger Stadium!
