CIRQUE DU SOLEIL STAGES ‘KOOZA’

Where Melbourne - - Where Now Live On Stage -

“KOOZA”, Cirque du Soleil’s lat­est Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion, is on at Flem­ing­ton Race­course. The show marks a re­turn to the ori­gins of Cirque du Soleil, com­bin­ing two cir­cus tra­di­tions—ac­ro­batic per­for­mance and the art of clown­ing. The show high­lights the phys­i­cal de­mands of hu­man per­for­mance in all its splen­dour and fragility, pre­sented in a colour­ful mélange that em­pha­sises slap­stick hu­mour. It also ex­plores themes of strength, fragility, tur­moil, har­mony, fear, iden­tity, recog­ni­tion and power. The show fol­lows The In­no­cent as he takes a jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery. That jour­ney brings him into con­tact with numer­ous comic char­ac­ters such as the King, the Trick­ster and the Ob­nox­ious Tourist and his Bad Dog.

On­go­ing, Flem­ing­ton Race­course, 448 Ep­som Road, Flem­ing­ton. 1800 036 685. cirque­du­soleil.com/kooza
