One need not travel to the bright lights of Las Vegas to enjoy the spoils of the spectacular Cirque Du Soleil, because KOOZA is coming to the Australians amongst you! The East Coast is set to taste its eighth Big Top tour of Cirque du Soleil commencing this August in Sydney.

We were lucky enough to be offered a taste of the flexibility and wonder set for our shores at the Sydney KOOZA launch party. 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 colourful mélange, KOOZA springs open like a bejewelled 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 splendour and fragility. The international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors present heart-stopping feats and laugh-outloud to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats.
