Cirque du Soleil: KOOZA
Sam Houston Race Park is proud to welcome KOOZA, a Cirque du Soleil performance now touring the United States. The show opens in Houston on July 26, 2012 and will take place under the Grand Chapiteau. Performance Dates: July 26th through September 2.
Only a few weeks before performances of KOOZA begin at the Sam Houston Race Park and we’re just as excited as you are! In fact, due to overwhelming response, we’ve added 10 new performances to our current line-up: From August 24 to September 2, 2012.
KOOZA tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world.
KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It 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 Innocent’s journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.
Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement.
