KOOZA lives up to the Cirque du Soleil reputation for outstanding staging and performance. Seating for this show were comfortable armless padded theater seats, but may be a little narrow for larger size individuals. The parking lot ($10) was a well graded and lined gravel lot adjacent to the paved area on which the Grand Chapiteau was erected. Access and exit from the parking was simple and well controlled. This National Harbor site is easily accessed from near the MD end of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. The seats that were selected for us (tickets ready at Will Call) gave us excellent visability of the round stage. The Grand Chapiteau is climate controlled. Access to our seats required climbing stairs to the top tier and then back down to our seats. Those with problems climbing stairs should inquire about access options.
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.
