Prepare to be dazzled as Cirque du Soleil returns

WHERE once we would have had to go to Vegas to see a show like this, now it comes to us here in Brisbane and it is set to have your spine tingling.

Cirque du Soleil will return to Brisbane with its show KOOZA, an extraordinary extravaganza presented under Cirque du Soleil's trademark blue and yellow big top.

You'll have to wait until November but the word is to get in quickly for tickets as the show will be a sell-out with its adrenaline rush of acrobatics in a colourful homage to the traditions of circus including the art of clowning.

KOOZA follows The Innocent as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a comic kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and surprises in a colourful melange to capture your imagination and set your pulse racing.

An international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors combine to present heart-stopping feats and laugh-out-loud antics to a live soundtrack of jazz, funk and Bollywood beat.

Kooza opens on November 24, at Skygate, near Brisbane airport.

Tickets and more information at: cirquedusoleil.com/kooza or free call 1800036685.

The mission of Cirque du Soleil is to invoke the imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world.

It all started in Baie-Saint-Paul, a small town near Québec City in Canada.

There, in the early 80s, a band of colourful characters roamed the streets, striding on stilts, juggling, dancing, breathing fire, and playing music.

Already, the townsfolk were impressed and intrigued by the young performers - including Guy Laliberté who founded Cirque du Soleil.
