Cirque du Soleil: Kooza
This year's Cirque du Soleil show is called Kooza. It's about a melancholy loner called The Innocent who discovers the world of Kooza. The Innocent struggles to find his place in the world of Kooza. There are many other characters such as the Trickster, the clowns and the pickpocket. Kooza goes back to the origins of Cirque du Soleil. It combines the art of clowning around with acrobatics. To find out more information, go to www.cirquedusoleil.com My favourite part was when two acrobats went on two brass circles that looked like a pair of handcuffs. The circles started turning. To stay on the circles, these acrobats had to keep walking. Their pace was decided by how fast the two circles were moving through the air, high in the big top. It was amazing when they skipped rope; the pair of circles were going so fast that one of them seemed to be flying in mid-air while doing his rope-skipping. Kooza was a good show. It was funny, interesting and amusing. One small improvement would be to have The Innocent do his own act at the end. The whole show is about what he sees and learns from the series of acts. He should show the audience what he has learned in his own segment at the end of the show.
