I know it is not a movie...https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/kurios
Went to this year's traveling Cirque show. If this show is coming to a town near you, and you are interested in a review - here are my thoughts.
I have seen every Cirque traveling show since at least 2003 and most of the ones in Vegas.
This is not my favorite - not by a long shot. It wasn't nearly as high energy as most Cirque shows.
There are at least 4 acts/segments that were very weak and could have been cut entirely. They seened to have been included mainly just to eat up time. They lacked humor and were kind of obvious that they didn't meet the normally high standards.
The Asian women are still flexible as all get out. Any women that can sit on her own head gets my vote. I would have liked to see them do another segment.
The juggling was top notch and the yoyo act was really cool.
Some interesting aerial work and the woman that did the aerial work with the bicycle was really gifted even if the choreography was more technical than it was artistic.
There is some amazing balancing work. Two segments come to mind. One act had chairs being stacked up, not just up from the stage, but also down from the top of the tent. Keep an eye on the people up top. They were amazingly skilled in making it look like the gravity was pulling them up to the top of the tent instead of reality. The second one involved a single gymnast showing what can be done with some serious indo board skills/practice.
The "trampoline" segment using a net as the tramp was really choreographed well.
Some of the traveling shows I would pay to see more than once. This is not one of them.
If you just love Cirque and have to see every show, go ahead and go - I am still glad I went. The Asian women (If I remember right, they are Chinese gymnasts) are always worth it.
If you have never seen a Cirque show, this might not be the best choice for a first timer. If you have extra money then go, just remember that there are better shows left to see. If this will break your budget, then hold off and save your money for a trip to Vegas and go see the Beatles Love show or Mystique. I haven't seen Ka yet. I think I have seen the rest, including the seductive Zumanity.
