This teaser is pretty much just IRIS with the clowns from Zed walking in the beginning...could this mean that Cirque is restructuring IRIS, changing the name, and putting it out as a touring show?

You pretty much summed up everything I saw and thought

Colton - I thought the same thing.

The first link I saw about the teaser video did go to a fan Youtube site, but I also noticed that Cirque posted a link to a teaser on their website, which goes to their Youtube page - and it's the same video. That link I used in my post about it (http://www.cirquefascination.com/?p=4464).

EDIT: You can also find the video via the link here: http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/shows/kurios/media/official-video.aspx

I was expecting so much more from Kurios than just a rehash of Iris. From the director's description, I had thought that Kurios may turn out to be a darker version of Kooza- a concept that really excited me. I hope that this very short excerpt turns out to be a poor reflection of the final show.

We don't really know if KURIOS is a rehash of IRIS just yet. It's just a teaser video that happens to use footage from a show that potentially shares its unusual aesthetic. I'm hoping for more too. I hope we learn more soon. Otherwise I'm going to start thinking this show isn't anywhere near together yet...

Guys you can't judge an entire show on a 30 second clip that largely consists of footage from older shows...just wait and see.

Well that's embarrassing.

But at the same time I think many of us to agree iris was one of cirques strongest creations of the last five years. And it was cut prematurely and a lot of excellent craftsmanship and artistry was abruptly wasted. Why not salvage the best of that and give it new life? Isn't that what we all hope for anyways when a beloved show closes? We dream it will some day, somehow live again.

This. Even if Kurios consists of a lot of material from Iris, that's still good. We'll still have Iris, but basically in touring form.

I'm glad you're embarrassed. That was very rude of you to say what you said...

I think like every big company out there, like to start fresh and show brand new products. Cirque du soleil i would feel, probably did indeed start fresh. I don't think they would want to show Iris in touring form. As a company, I personally think they made Kurios on an empty sheet of paper. But i could be wrong.

Not embarrassed for myself but embarrassed for cirque. when your product is so low budget its indistinguishable from fan made content...

And to be honest I have yet to be proven otherwise that this is actually a cirque official trailer, nothing on the facebook fan pages for the show or their actually YouTube channel.

Doesn't even really matter. It's just a thirty second clip with little to no real info in it anyway XD We'll just wait for an actual trailer to come out that has actual show footage

How else would they have gotten the animated logo with the eye? I agree that it's crap-tastic, but I dont think the animated text and logo hadn't been seen before. If it had, then there would have been the possibility of a fan stealing that to make his/her trailer.

Maybe the static in the video is part of the theme of the show? We did, in fact, see what appears to be an electric chair on the Kurios stage.

Did anyone see Kurios's stage on CDS's Facebook page? If not, here.
https://www.facebook.com/kuriosbycirquedusoleil/photos/a.205006646356553...
It looks like a mashup of Iris, some Totem and perhaps some Kooza in there.
The set is designed by Stéphane Roy, he designed Dralion, Varekai, Zumanity, Kooza and Zarkana's set.
I expect alot out of Kurios.

Besides the link I posted that came directly from the Cirque show site, here's a tweet that Cirque just sent out, going to the same video. :)

The stage looks great. I hope the show is amazing because Amaluna was a huge disappointment.

Speaking of amaluna let-down. Check out a recently posted PR performance of hula hoop on the official Facebook page....

Yikes. That was hard to watch. Did this replace the unicycles? It sounds like the unicycles song. Not sure if those hoops were supposed to fall to the floor at the end of the video, but yeah, what a joke.

The only act I enjoyed was the Balance Goddess act.

The new Chinese artist for the balancing act has the technical aspect down, but her artistry needs some marinating. I'll also miss Laura's full figured form. It was a breath of fresh air on the athletic stage.

Has anyone seen the Hoop act all the way through live? Again..that was only a 15 second clip with a single trick. It's kind of hard to judge an entire act as "joke" when you have only seen a clip of a single trick being performed..

I saw it twice in Minneapolis last October. I thought the performer did a nice job.

That teaser was a bit creepy to me. Remind me of those teasers from American Horror Story .

That was scary as hell! As trapezedevil said it totally looks like an AHS promo. It looked like he was breathing through that thing. Sooo creepy.

The round character I believe is a former 'cricket' artist from ovo. Also these promos have me worried that the only thing ready for the show at this point are those two costumes.

I love how weird and creepy these characters are! It's very Dragone-esque.

Yes, Karl is the name of the former OVO cricket.
