June 19, 2019

Written and directed by Michel Laprise, KURIOS celebrates the greatest inventions of the 19th century. In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a scientist (the Seeker) discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, people must first learn to close their eyes.

Audiences are invited to step into the larger-than-life cabinet of curiosities or cabinet of wonder of the Seeker who defies the laws of time, space and dimensions in order to reinvent everything around him. Suddenly, the visible becomes invisible, perspectives are transformed, and the world is literally turned upside down.

Springing up from The Seeker’s cabinet of wonder is an international cast of 47 artists from 17 countries, a collection of otherworldly characters made up of world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, hand-puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians. Together, they turn the Seeker’s steampunk world upside-down as they are guided by an energetic gypsy jazz, electro swing soundtrack.
