Kooza: Cir­cus fun in a box

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Circus - Tanya Macnaughton

THE strik­ing yel­low and blue striped grand chapiteau has re­turned to lure Perth au­di­ences to the next Cirque du Soleil show over­flow­ing with won­der: Kooza.

This lat­est mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence re­turns to the Cana­dian com­pany’s fun­da­men­tals of ac­ro­batic per­for­mance and clown­ing, in spec­tac­u­lar and imag­i­na­tive style.

The hu­man con­nec­tion starts be­fore the lights dim, as comic char­ac­ters in­ter­act with au­di­ence mem­bers and be­gin the laugh­ter.

Fun and fri­vol­ity con­tinue as char­ac­ter The Trick­ster jumps like a jack-in-the-box to start The In­no­cent on a jour­ney, with acts rang­ing from aerial hoop, con­tor­tion and high wire to teeter­board, uni­cy­cle and the Wheel of Death.

Kooza takes in­spi­ra­tion from the San­skrit word koza, mean­ing ‘box’ and this cir­cus in a box has au­di­ence mem­bers on the edge of their seats as the cast show­case abil­i­ties that defy the hu­man skill set – and gravity.

Kooza is show­ing at Belmont Race­course un­til June 11.
