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.   What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?   For more information, visit http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/kurios
