I've never been to a Cirque du Soleil show before. I expected to love it, but I didn't. It was very good, but somehow I expected more. Like a double trapeze act. And I absolutely didn't understand the story line.

It was a very good show, but I have enjoyed previous ones better. This show did not have as strong as a "theme" as othes had.

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, audacity and total involvement.
