Cirque du Soleil is delighted to announce the return of its trademark blue-and-yellow big top to Brisbane with an all-new production, KOOZA. A sparkling, colourful homage to the traditions of circus, KOOZA will open on Thursday, November 24 2016 for a limited engagement at Skygate Brisbane Airport.
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.
