Cirque du Soleil Kooza Premiere in Singapore

Cirque du Soleil is here in Singapore with an awe-inspiring production, Kooza, from 12 July to 20 August 2017.

KOOZA is a name inspired by the Sanskrit word "Koza" which means "box" or "treasure". 

Emerging from this magical box, Kooza, is an international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from 19 different countries performing physically astonishing feats and laugh-out-loud antics.

Kooza is held at a intimate setting of the blue and yellow Big Top. The venue is located off Bayfront Link on the Promenade, next to Marina Bay Sands.

Collected the tickets and ready to head in to the Big Top. 
So thankful for the tickets.

I brought Steffi along with me because she is also a fan of Cirque du Soleil. Both of us were so excited for the cirque.

While waiting for the show to begin, I bumped into my friends. I felt so happy to see them, it feel like ages since I last saw them. Happily catching up before the show started, during interval and after the show.

It was full house on the first premiere night of Kooza.
The casts have got us all warm up for the show with their hilarious acts and mingling with the audience. If you are lucky, you might be treated with 'free popcorn'.

Excitement has filled the air and the crowds were chanting for the show to begin.

And the show began:

The KOOZA tells the story of "The Innocent" who represents the child within us all, as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and out-of-the-box surprises. 

Kooza brought us on an eye opening journey that capture the audience's imagination and set pulses racing.

KOOZA combines acrobatic performance and the art of clowning.
The audience were totally immersed in the performance, there was never a boring moment. I enjoyed every bits of the performance, even the clown performance was entertaining.

This was one of the performances that got my hair all stand up - the art of Contortion.
The trio has amazing flexibility that allows them to twist and bend into any position they like. It is so incredible that makes us rub our eyes in disbelief. I can't believe human beings can actually achieve this flexibility. Omg!!!!

Anticipating grew in us, we can't wait to find out what's coming up next.

Double Highwire performance gave the audience a cold sweat.
The casts were performing many stunts on the suspended highwire. They could do backward walking, skipping, pole balancing and cycling just on the wire. So amazing!

This is my favourite performance of all, the Wheel of Death.

I was literally holding my breath when the pair took their place in each end of the ring and got it spinning. They coordinated very well with one another and could even do skipping when the wheel was turning at a fast speed. I was totally blown away.

We have come to the end of the performance.

I really enjoyed myself throughout the entire performance and was blown away by all the amazing stunts and entertaining acts, not forgetting the clowns that create laughter.

Be sure to be treated to a spectacular visual performance that will bring your heart in your mouth and leaving your mouth wide open during the performance.

This is an amazing show that is worth watching.
