"Make no mistake, the athletic prowess of the performers is as dazzling as ever. From the maniacal contortions of a yo-yo master (known only as Black), who seems to bend time as agilely as he bends his own body, Cirque continues to raise the bar on its own level of poetic dexterity."
"Cirque du Soliel is unparalleled at creating fantastical environments peopled by surreal beings doing things barely imaginable. However, they're even better when their show also lean toward the human or super-human than toward the non-human. As much as we want to be thrilled by things we can't imagine, we also want to be tickled by things that we could imagine our alternate selves just possibly being capable of like putting some 10,000 hours of practice to be a tenth as good as Cirque's yo yo guy. Moreover, the game stops being interesting if we ever forget that these superhuman performers are human. Kurios seemed to find a better balance between these human and non-human elements which is why this show is one of the best I've seen in years."
