The ‘Circus of the Sun’ or ‘Cirque du Soleil’ as it is officially known, is an amazing entertainment visual and auditory feast presented in various venues around the world. The ‘circus’ is comprised of human performers engaged in extraordinary feats of acrobatics, dance and other movement set to music. Elements such as water, fire, and height are all part of the various shows. The main premise of Cirque du Soleil is to celebrate the raw power and beauty of human physical performance.
The Cirque de Soleil’s KOOZA is currently running at The Royal Albert Hall and the team at J&K Apartments had the pleasure of seeing the show last week. If you are coming to London on business or pleasure, this really is a spectacle not to be missed. From the terrifying ‘wheel or death’ to the ladies who contort their bodies in ways which do not appear humanly possible, the Cirque du Soleil is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!
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.
