A gleeful romp through some of Broadway's most beloved numbers and two exciting world premieres will take center stage as Smuin Ballet closes out its 20th anniversary season with XXcentric. Choreographed by the company's late, great founder Michael Smuin, Dancin' With Gershwin explores the evolution and reinvention of American dance, with a little help from the Great White Way. The world-premiere ballet But now I must rest comes from Smuin choreographer-in-residence Amy Seiwert and draws inspiration from the lush music of Cesária Évora, aka the Queen of Morna. The program's other world-premiere piece, choreographer Val Caniparoli's Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), blends the music of Vivaldi and the company's high-energy athleticism with wit and reflective beauty.

This was one of my favorite Cirque shows ever! Lots of "wow" moments - more so than in previous shows, but the clown acts in between were LONG and super boring! Without those and with better seats, this would have been a 5 star experience.
Our seats were behind one of those tall and big metal structures, resulting in serious restricted viewing.

Kooza tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world.
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.
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, audacity and total involvement.
