Cirque du Soleil is bringing its trademark blue-and-yellow big top to Brisbane with a new production, Kooza. A homage to the traditions of circus, Kooza will open on Thursday, November 24 2016 for a limited engagement at Skygate Brisbane Airport.
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 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, thrills and out-of-the-box surprises.
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.
