Kooza pays tribute to the traditional circus in all its splendor, complete with audacious acrobatic prowess and bold slapstick comedy, filled with chills, thrill, laughter, and wonder. Kooza tells the story of “The innocent” a melancholy loner who embarks on a journey of self-discovery in a magical world full of fascinating characters and features a wide variety of awe-inspiriting acts, including contortionists, jugglers, trapeze artists, and clowns. In the past, the show has received critical acclaim for its breathtaking performances, inventive staging, and captivating storytelling, making it a must-see experience for circus and theater enthusiasts alike.
