Save the Date: KOOZA from Cirque du Soleil

Opening in Dallas on September 19, KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil that 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 name of KOOZA is inspired by the Sanskrit work “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”.

KOOZA includes 10 acts that will keep you at the edge of your seat the whole time - including the Wheel of Death performed for the 1st time under a Cirque du Soleil big top.

The white Big Top will be set for the first time in Lot E at 500 Memorial Drive beneath Reunion Tower. KOOZA opens Wednesday, September 19th for a limited engagement. To purchase tickets, visit http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/shows/kooza/tickets/dallas.aspx
