KOOZA, Cirque du Soleil, New York

On April 30th, 2009 I went to see Cirque du Soleil show called KOOZA, which was a great experience. The show is a very nice story of The Innocent. It is a story about a sad and miserable loner who is in desperate search of his place in the world.

The show was almost 3 hours long with a 30 minute intermission, and included lots of acrobatic performances and the art of clowning, which was very funny and just the right amount of it. The show delivered brilliant performances with lots of laughter and smiles, strengths and fear, and great amount of surprises and thrills.

I was holding my breath almost throughout the entire show and the most thrilled part was when two acrobats flung themselves in and out of a very heavy Wheel, called Wheel of Death. Just imagine two connected hamster wheels, spinning around at such incredible speeds and heights and two acrobats flinging themselves in an out. The performers where very confident in themselves and they made it seem to be so easy defying gravity, jumping through the air, and landing perfectly on the spinning wheels. This act was very dangerous and brilliant at the same time and made me hold my breath during the entire act.

One of the other acts that I personally liked was when a tightly toned man used his extreme physical talent to balance on top of a 20 something foot tower of chairs standing on just one hand on the top of the tower while everyone in the packed tent applauded. Another surprise was when one performer danced laying on her belly as her feet taped circles around her body. The show was really spectacular and worth seeing. I have seen many other Cirque du Soleil shows including my favorite show “O”, which is on the water, “Majestic”, “Alegria”, “Guidam” and others, and every time Cirque du Soleil delivers great themes of child-like wonders, empowerment and Cirque du Soleil really knows how to entertain.

If you want to have a good time, experience lots of laughter, chills and thrills then KOOZA is for you. It has definitely put a smile on my face.  🙂
