KOOZA By Cirque Du Soleil®

Showing January to March 2017 at Flemington Racecourse.

Cirque du Soleil® will return to Melbourne in January 2017, bringing its spectacular new show under the Big Top to Flemington.

Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins with the company’s eighth Big Top show to tour Australia.

A sparkling homage to the traditions of circus, KOOZA springs open like a bejeweled toy box to capture your imagination and set your pulse racing.

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.

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
