Inspired by the Age of Enlightenment, Random Dance's multi-sensory, multimedia work Far (Flesh in the Age of Reason) features 10 incredible dancers in a project that confronts the distortions, sensuality and feeling of the 18th century -- all set against a cutting-edging computerized pin board comprised of 3,200 LED lights. At once physical and immediate yet intensely cerebral, Far features a haunting original score by Ben Frost, a critically acclaimed Australian composer known for his post-classical electronic music. The show is created by award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor, hailed for his innovative approach to new technology and fast, articulate choreographic style. Learn More

This show was not as exciting as previous CirceD'Soleil shows that I have seen, but was still very good.They had more clown tpyes acts and less of the flashy gymnastics and dancing and some of the feats failed, but they repeated and succeeded so in a way it just raised the excitement level. We had a great time and loved the audience involvement and the remarks that were tailored to the DC area.
KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It 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.
KOOZA tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world. The Innocent’s journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.
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 and total involvement.
