I had a sneak preview of Cirque du Soleil KOOZA on Friday night, which will open on Thursday, August 25 2016 for a limited engagement at The Showring at the Entertainment Quarter, Sydney.
Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins with the company’s eighth Big Top show to tour Australia. A return to the intimate and fundamental human elements of circus, KOOZA combines thrilling acrobatic performance with the art of clowning. We follow The Innocent as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a comic kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and out-of-the-box surprises.
Presented in a colorful mélange, KOOZA springs open like a bejeweled toy box to capture the audience’s imagination and set their pulse racing. Sheer human effort - performance in its rawest, purest form - is showcased in all its splendor and fragility.
The international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors present heart-stopping feats and laugh-out- loud antics to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats.
