Tickets now on sale exclusively to Cirque Club members
Public on-sale begins on Friday February 19 2016
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.
Tickets are available to the general public from February 19 2016 at www.cirquedusoleil.com/kooza or by phone on toll free 1800 036 685.
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
“… a thrilling spectacle jam-packed with white-knuckle acrobatic moments.” Los Angeles Times
“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
“… my heart stopped, I held my breath and even stifled a gasp.” The Daily Mail, UK
