Kooza Comes to Brisbane
DARE-DAZZLING, dramatic, DEATH-DEFYING, heart-stopping, utterly brilliant …. KOOZA by Cirque du Soleil is in town for 2016. 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.”
Ticket for the Brisbane season of KOOZA are at Cirque du Soleil Kooza website or by phone on toll free 1800 036 685. Showing at Skygate (next to Brisbane Airport DFO) from Nov 24 2016 until Jan 8 2017.
