An adrenaline rush of acrobatics under the famous blue-and-yellow big top.
Cirque du Soleil is ecstatic to return to Auckland with its trademark blue-and-yellow big top (Grand Chapiteau) for the first time in five years, with the spectactular production KOOZA. A breath-taking, colourful homage to the traditions of circus, KOOZA will premiere Friday, February 8th, 2019 and will perform for a limited engagement at Alexandra Park, Epsom.
Tickets are now available online at the website.
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.”
The Daily Mail, UK
