    Montreal Gazette: “Nouveau Cirque Switches Gears” (KURIOS)

    Screaming anachronisms and a cocky science fiction attitude make for a Steampunk world under the Big Top down at the Old Port, where the Cirque du Soleil’s latest tent show, Kurios — Cabinet of Curiosities, is being prepared for its April 24 opening.
