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.

“KOOZA is a show that blends, almost to perfection, its sub-continental sounds, its stunning lighting and costumes with theatrical ingenuity and acrobatic wonder.” – The Independent, London

“KOOZA, a back-to-basics affair, presents the usual rubbery contortionists, fearless tightrope walkers and other gravity-defying daredevils. But what is special about this new production is that Cirque introduces some carefully choreographed chaos and old-fashioned sideshow spark… the real pleasures are the genuinely funny clowns.” – The New York Times

    Kooza..no words can describe how brillant this show is. From the very opening entrance of the characters in there red outfits to dancing with the beautiful songs of music in the background was amazing.
    I couldnt believe the abilities of these performers, they were all professional and worth supporting.
    The most impressive scene if I had to pick onevwas the acrobatic flipping on stilts onto a mat. If anyone gets the chance you need to go and see.
    it is a close 5 out of 5 production.
    loved kooza…all of it is brillant….
