On Friday, June 2, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities comes to Winnipeg to live at the corner of Kenaston Boulevard and Sterling Lyon Parkway until July.
Written and directed by Michael Laprise, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities is a tale which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible. In this realm, set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, reality is quite relative indeed as our perception of it is utterly transformed. The name of the show refers to the humble and strange characters that inhabit the Seeker’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
If you’ve never seen a Cirque show, it is a delight for the senses. These shows can entertain the whole family and with tickets starting at $40 it is a fantastic way to see Cirque right in your backyard! If you have a dance or gymnastics enthusiast in your family these shows are particularly engaging and enthralling.

Tickets are available by visiting cirquedusoleil.com/kurios or calling 1-‐877-‐9CIRQUE (1-‐877-‐924‐7783). Tickets are also available at the MTS Centre box office and Ticketmaster.ca.
