Spectacular. Breathtaking. Sensational!
It’s KOOZA, the latest touring show from Cirque du Soleil, and it combines the traditional circus arts and clowning around with the heart-stopping acrobatics for which Cirque du Soleil is known. Prepare to be dazzled by KOOZA this fall, but hurry, as it’s only in Calgary until October 8, 2023!
Cirque du Soleil is the name on everyone’s lips when it comes to fantastic, sought-after shows for the whole family. The show was born from a troupe of street performers in Baie-Saint-Paul, a town near Quebec City. Created in 1984 to commemorate the 450th anniversary of Jacques Cartier’s arrival in Canada, Guy Laliberté presented a plan for a show called Cirque du Soleil (Circus of the Sun). Years later, millions of people on 6 continents and in 86 countries have been transfixed. As one of the most successful theatrical productions of our age, Cirque du Soleil has redefined what circus means, with story and multimedia production, acrobatics, dance, and humour.
No matter what show Cirque du Soleil presents, prepare to be transported to a magical world by profoundly talented and dedicated performers. Every show offers the ultimate entertainment by letting you escape reality for an evening.
KOOZA is no different as it tells the story of a journey. The Innocent is a charming, naive clown looking for his place in the world. He meets a collection of comic characters during this story of self-discovery that combines two circus traditions, acrobatic performances and clowning. The show demonstrates the strength and fragility of the human experience, presented with a dose of humour.
Cirque du Soleil describes the show in this way, “A return to our origins, KOOZA combines acrobatic performance and the art of clowning, while exploring fear, identity, recognition and power. The Innocent’s journey brings him into contact with comic characters from an electrifying world full of surprises, thrills, audacity and total involvement.”
