“KOOZA”, Cirque du Soleil’s lat­est Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion high­lights amaz­ing acts of agility, bal­ance and dar­ing from a cast of ex­tremely tal­ented and en­thu­si­as­tic ac­ro­bats and mu­si­cal per­form­ers from all corners of the world. 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. The show’s sto­ry­line 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.
