[Win Tickets to KOOZA]
Global phenomenon Cirque du Soleil return to Auckland in February with KOOZA, and Theatre Scenes is thrilled to be able to offer readers the chance to win a double pass.
KOOZA marks a return to the company’s roots – the show is described as a “colourful, sparkling homage to the traditions of circus, combining thrilling acrobatics with the art of clowning.” While some recent shows have played at Spark arena, Soliel will perform KOOZA in their famous blue and yellow Big Top at Alexandra Park. Acts include charivari, contortion, high wire, a unicyle duo, and the heart-stopping wheel of death.
Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins with the company’s first Big Top show since Totem in 2014. 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.
We have two double passes in season to give away.

KOOZA plays the Big Top at Alexandra Park from 15 February until 17 March. You can discover more about the show here.
