KURIOS — Cabinet of Curiosities
, promises the same high-flying, death-defying acts that will leave everyone’s jaws floor-bound. Dawn Wilson, assistant artistic director, says, “We are pushing it much higher, much more original, and we’ve added more theatrical surprises to the acrobatics. It is new, it is high-energy and it is not what they’ve seen before. From its opening act, I think the audience is already asking, ‘How are they going to top that?’ and we do. It only gets more unexpected and outstanding as the show goes on.”

Step into Cirque du Soleil's curious cabinet of an ambitious inventor where the visible becomes invisible, perspectives are transformed, and the world is literally turned upside down.
In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes.
In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams lie waiting. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world.
When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.
Under the Big Top (The Grand Chapiteau) at Sam Houston Race Park. Family-friendly show but strollers are not permitted inside the tent. Tickets purchased for children must have an adult seated beside.
