Back in February it was announced that Cirque du Soleil would be returning to Australia this year to present KOOZA. It has recently been confirmed just when the show will be headed to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
Travelling around the country in their trademark blue-and-yellow big top, the show will first stop off at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park in Sydney – with shows set to begin on August 25th 2016. It will then be travelling north to Brisbane, where it will be situated at the Skygate Brisbane Airport (Near DFO) from November 24th 2016. Finally into the new year, Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne will be Cirque du Soleil’s home from January 20th 2017. There will also be a Perth season, with dates yet to be confirmed.
Tickets can be purchased via the Cirque du Soleil website, or by phoning them on 1800 036 685. Tickets begin at $60, with a number of packages on offer.
Official “About KOOZA”
Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins with the company’s eighth Big Top show to tour Australia. A return to the intimate and fundamental human elements of circus, KOOZA combines thrilling acrobatic performance with the art of clowning. We follow 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. Presented in a colorful mélange, KOOZA springs open like a bejeweled toy box to capture the audience’s imagination and set their pulse racing. Sheer human effort – performance in its rawest, purest form – is showcased in all its splendor and fragility. The international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors present heart-stopping feats and laugh-out-loud antics to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats.
