Kurios Filming in Chicago?

Hey everyone. Just got back from the 5pm show of Kurios in Chicago and noticed a sign that said this show was being filmed. Does anyone have more info about this? Hoping it's for a DVD release.

Ohhh this sounds is good news as my mom might be going KURIOS in Atlanta and I was hoping the DVD would be out by then.

If it was filmed in Toronto I'd expect the DVD out by Atlanta - probably soon so they could capitalize on the holiday gift-buying season. Oh, wait. No boutique. :p

If its being filmed now I wouldn't expect the DVD out by Atlanta. They'll have to edit and master and then press the DVDs. I don't know if they could do that by then? But if they were to film for a digital release sooner with a package DVD to follow, that I could get behind. :)

MystereGuy, If this was for the DVD, I have a few questions I'm hoping you can answer;

1) Were there three or four contorionists? (I'm hoping it was four!)
2) Were there one or two aerial straps artists (some shows didn't have the act at all, some just had one aerialist, and others had the complete two.)
3) Was hand puppetry in the show? (It's one of my favorite acts in the show, but I think it's a rotational or backup act.)
4) Did your showing have Rola Bola or hand balancing on canes? (Hoping for Rola Bola cuz the latter was real boring, just like aerial bike and hand balancing on chairs.)

Thanks!

Yeah according to the Instagram of one of the contortionists, in Chicago they premiered the official three-girl routine.

the fourth is gone for good, or just out for injury? I noticed they were down to three but wasn't sure why.

I may have to agree with Richasi I dont see why they would film in Chicago. They have never filmed there before. Id be more inclined to believe they filmed in Toronto, Atlanta, or San Fran before I hear Chicago. They probably are filming to update the teaser trailer on the website. That teaser has been out since around or before Toronto. I also can't wait to see It in atlanta in March 2016. I cant say that i was drew in though just from the trailer and the acts themselves. But then again I was the same exact way with Corteo and Kooza until I saw it live and i was hooked! It reminds me of when the brought Varekai and Alegria back in the spring. Its a nice twist!

I think KURIOS has already been filmed. Check out this clip I found on Youtube; it looks like it was very professionally filmed to me.

Also check out that channel they have a clip of upside down world from KURIOS that also looks professionally filmed.

If the sign was for it being filmed here for DVD or just as a commercial, doesn't matter to me as long as we get a DVD lol. I've been going to Cirque shows for almost 20 years now and Kurios is one of my top favorites.

If the contortion act is down to three girls permanently, then that's very unfortunate, because that last trick they do with the four girls just blows my mind!

I saw a glimpse of the new program online and the black and white photography was so beautiful. I think they'll bring in a new artist for contortion, if they have't started training one already. Always a bummer as a fan to see an act short a few artists knowing what could have been.

I hope they will have a replacement. That would show that Cirque is paying more attention to the quality of it's shows; not the financial aspect.

Maybe the fourth contortionist left to oversee the contortion act in Paramour, since the Kurios contortion group was originally from Iris?

Either way, I've seen Kurios a few times and have seen both the three and four-girl contortion act, and the four one is so much better!

I just got back to my hotel after seeing both shows today. In the first there were three contortionists and one straps performer. The second show had four contortionists and the straps duo.

Weird.... Maybe a new one is training and not doing all shows?

I assume so, but then they usually post that on their social media pages e.g. Totem has a backup hoop dancer

Yeah TOTEM is also more active on social media pages than KURIOS.

Not sure if this was already shared, but found some beautifully shot footage of Kurios. Hopefully the DVD will look this good.

No I don't believe it. But with the way Cirque is being ran lately, anything is possible I suppose.

I can dispell that... I was wondering out loud in the Facebook group what would replace Acro Net should Kurios EVENTUALLY transition to arena, not anytime soon.

Isn't Kurios only a year old? Why would they transfer it to arena so fast?

It's two years old and they wouldn't. I was just worried about Acro Net when they do decide to transfer it in 10 or so years...

Unbelievable, I'm not going until the last weekend of January. The least they could have done is wait for me Wink

During the filming, I hope hey have all four girls for contortion and both guys for aerial straps. The rest I don't really care for.
