Cirque du Soliel has added a final three weeks to the Brisbane season of their all-new production, Kooza.
Kooza had its Australian premiere in Sydney last week, and received a standing ovation from the star-studded crowd — and rave reviews from the likes of The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, ArtsHub, Australian Stage and Stage Whispers.
A back-to-basics return to the intimate and fundamental human elements of circus, Kooza combines thrilling acrobatic performance with the art of clowning.
Cirque du Soleil shows have played to over 160 million spectators in more than 400 cities in over 60 countries across six continents, so the arrival of a new Cirque show in Brisbane is always a big deal, and Kooza looks to be no exception.
The audience follows 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 will present heart-stopping feats and laugh-out-loud antics to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats.
Kooza‘s Brisbane season will open on Thursday 24 November at Skygate Brisbane Airport; the season has just been extended for a further three weeks, taking it through to Sunday 8 January 2017. No further extension is possible.
