KOOZA, one of the most-requested shows by Cirque Du Soleil, is unveiling its mystery for Shenzhen audiences from March 1 to April 1 at the public square of Longgang Radio and Television Center, Shenzhen Media Group.

The name “KOOZA” is derived from the Sanskrit “Koza,” which means “box and treasure.” From a small box, a magical circus world is released to audiences. Different from traditional circuses, Cirque Du Soleil has no animal performers and only employs three key elements: a large tent, clowns and acrobatics.

Cirque Du Soleil, dubbed the national treasure of Canada, has performed in over 400 cities of 60 countries. Their tent covers 17,000 square meters and can accommodate 2,600 audience members. Eight musicians perform live music during the show. The KOOZA show is embarking on a world tour that includes six cities in China, and Shenzhen is the first stop in the country.
