This past weekend, Beakernight took over the Sunalta area of Downtown Calgary. What is Beakernight you ask? It’s described as “a massive outdoor gallery of art and engineering, including fire-spitting skee ball, interactive works, performances and experiences.” Pretty much super awesome stuff. Words can’t describe how cool it was, so here’s a bunch of photos from the event. Enjoy!
Thursday night I had the pleasure of attending Cirque Du Soleil KURIOS here in Calgary. It has been 10 years since I’ve seen a touring Cirque show, and I must say this was the most impressive one I’ve ever seen. I’m a big fan of the Vegas and Orlando shows, as they have purpose built theatres and can do much more in that environment compared to a touring show. Once you’ve been to the resident shows, the touring shows all seem to repeat themselves with different themes. With that said, KURIOS was completely different in the best way and blew my mind. The steampunk theme, unique circus acts and music all worked together to create an incredible experience. The score was infectious, I couldn’t get the main hook out of my head. So much so I got the album immediately. If you’ve never been to a Cirque Du Soleil show, KURIOS is highly recommended!
