In Pics: KURIOS by Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil's acclaimed touring show, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities, is counting down to the end of its Singapore leg.

Presented in the intimate setting of the signature Big Top beside Marina Bay Sands, Kurios was certainly a breathtaking performance.

Through whimsical imageries, it celebrates the greatest inventions of the 19th century. Audience members are transported into the Curio Cabinet of an ambitious inventor who defies the laws of time, space and dimensions in order to reinvent everything around him. The visible become invisible, perspectives are transformed, and the world is turned upside down.

Pictures will never do the show justice, but here's a look at what you might have missed out on:
