KOOZA marks a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil, and combines two circus traditions: acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.
Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement.
A little about the characters:
The Trickster is a sublimely quick and agile being, a genius who knows all about the world of KOOZA because he created it. Charming and sophisticated, he appears and disappears at will, and there’s electricity in the air each time he arrives on stage.
The Trickster created this world for The Innocent and keeps a watchful eye out for him. He teases him, and plays tricks on him with his powers, but it’s The Innocent’s own subconscious that leads the dance…
The Innocent is a naïve and melancholy loner carried off into The Trickster’s world. Outwardly childlike, ingenuous and simple, he is eager to get to know the new world he’s in, but as soon as he uses The Trickster’s powers, he discovers an unexpected and jarring environment, a reflection of his soul.
