A return to our origins, KOOZA combines acrobatic performance and the art of clowning, while exploring fear, identity, recognition and power. The Innocent's journey brings him into contact with comic characters from an electrifying world full of surprises. The show starts with the Trickster bursting onto the scene
like a jack-in-the-box in front of The Innocent, and that’s just
the first of many surprises to come. The Innocent’s journey
brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters
such as the King, the Trickster, the Heimloss, the Obnoxious
Tourist and his Bad Dog.
Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles,
turmoil and harmony, KOOZA explores themes of identity,
recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and
exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity
and total involvement.
The name KOOZA is inspired by the Sanskrit word “koza,”
which means “box,” “chest” or “treasure,” and was chosen
because one of the underlying concepts of the production
is the idea of a “circus in a box.”
