Cirque du Soleil will arrive in Australia this month with KOOZA, a death-defying, colourful homage to the traditions of circus.
The national tour will begin in Sydney on 25 August 2016, where KOOZA will be performed under the famous blue-and-yellow Big Top at the Entertainment Quarter, before moving on to Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
Since its world premiere in Montreal in 2007, KOOZA has been seen by over 7 million people around the world and 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-outloud antics to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats. The cast and crew of KOOZA represents 20 nationalities: Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, China, Chile, Colombia, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Moldova, Mongolia, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
