About KOOZA:
Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins with the company’s first Big Top show since Totem in 2014. 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.”
