Cirque du Soleil returns to Singapore in July this year with 'KOOZA', and it takes us back to the roots of Cirque du Soleil which combines thrilling, heart-stopping acrobatic performance with the art of clowning. 'KOOZA' is the 5th instalment staged under a huge blue-and-yellow Big Top tent which is now at the Bayfront Avenue, next to Marina Bay Sands.
Every Cirque du Soleil's show is based on a particular theme, and for 'KOOZA', and it is inspired by the Sanskrit word 'Koza', which means 'Box', or 'Chest', or 'Treasure'. The KOOZA story follows 'The Innocent' who represents the child within us all, as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and out-of-the-box surprises.
The opening act about 'KOOZA' could be likened to a young lad opening a mystical and magical box, which allows for the denizens staying within to appear! From the very beginning, the circus does their best to capture the audience's imagination and sets pulses racing!
One of the acts that really thrilled me was the 'Wheel of Death', where 2 dare-devil acrobats performed on a wheel contraption, and they played on our anxieties to the extreme!
My favourite segment, without giving any spoilers, had to be the 4 tight rope walkers who threaded and balanced themselves on a thin line very high up! They showed their agility and dexterity by skipping, dancing, and even riding a tandem bike on the tight rope! It was a marvellous performance and kudos to all the acrobats who were involved in this stunning act!
If you are new to Cirque du Soleil, this is the best time to get to know and familiarize yourself with the biggest, loudest and the most intense circus perform ace act in the world!
I had the great pleasure to enter the Big Top tent to catch Cirque du Soleil all thanks to Sliding Door Entertainment!
