A homage to the traditional circus

Acrobatics and the Art of Clowning

Cirque du Soleil returns with KOOZA to its origins: the show combines the two old circus traditions acrobatics and art of clowning and explores fear, identity, recognition and power.

KOOZA tells the story of the “Innocent”, a dreamy and naïve loner. In the search of his place in the world, he meets comic characters from an electrifying and exotic world full of surprises, thrills, audacity and total involvement.

The name KOOZA is inspired by «koza», a word from Sanskrit, which means «box» or “treasure”. This name was chosen because of the show concept is based on the idea of a “circus in a box”.

Written and staged from Davin Shiner, KOOZA had its premiere in 2007 in Montreal. Since then, KOOZA has thrilled over 7.5 million visitors in over 68 cities in 22 different countries. Enjoy in the legendary big top an acrobatic spectacle with high-class artists, colourful costumes and wonderful live-music!
