Gasps of fear and sighs of wonder can be heard echoing nightly throughout The Grand Chapiteau since Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza rolled into town.
The new show is about what the creators call a return to circus traditions, bringing together two fundamental forces: acrobatics and clowning. Writer and director David Shiner knows a thing or two about the latter (he started out as a mime in Paris and has been in the clowning business for over 25 years).
As for the acrobatics, think contortionists, wheels of death, teeterboard acts on stilts and trapeze and high wire stunts.
Just remember to breathe.
Until October 24, find tickets here.
