Cirque du Soleil Presents: Koozå
Cirque du Soleil Images
Filmed /// 2007 | Toronto Run Time (120 min)

Koozå is the story of an innocent and charming clown who strives to find his own place in the world. Between strength and fragility, laughter and chills, and turmoil and harmony, Koozå, explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power.

Directed by David Shiner and filmed by Mario Janelle, Koozå is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, audacity and total involve-ment, and combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clown-ing. The show highlights the physical de-mands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.

Bonus Features
  • "A Thrilling Ride through Koozå" (46:03) — We hear from Director David Shiner, the ideas and thoughts behind what kind of show he was looking to create (one that brought us back to Cirque roots - thrills, chills and emotions) and all the work that he put in to conceiving a show of this caliber. We're taken on the journey the costume, makeup, and set designers underwent in order to bring the spectacle to life. We see the artists as they train for their parts, as well as settle into every-day Cirque life.

  • "Wheel of Death: The Art of Risk" (11:00) — is a featurette on the Wheel of Death and the art of risk one has to master to use it. Featuring the two talented artists in this act, Carlos Enrique Marin Loaiza and Jimmy Ibarra Zapata (both from Columbia, South America), we learn a little about what makes them tick, whether or not they're afraid when they get on the Wheel of Death (they are and not at the same time) and what keeps them doing these dangerous stunts night after night after night.

  • Others — Under PROMOS, you’ll find: KOOZÅ PROMOTIONAL SPOT, the same 22-second promotional video you would see in the concessions tent while waiting for the show to begin or at intermission; LOOKING FOR TALENT, a short video showcasing the Cirque du Soleil casting experience; and JOIN CIRQUE CLUB, a standard quick video promo about joining CirqueClub.
