Cirque du Soleil's Kooza

I was chosen this week to cover the sneak preview of Cirque du Soleil’s newest touring show Kooza, which is making it’s stop in Calgary at the Stampede grounds from September 16th to October 24th.

According to Cirque du Soleil’s website, Kooza marks a return to classic circus traditions, with insane high wire acts, hilarious clowning and classic big top thrills (I sound like a salesperson, but seriously, this show was amazing).

This act is called the “Wheel of Death”. It easily lives up to its name and marks probably one of the most mind blowing acrobatic acts I’ve ever seen.

Audience participation was a regular occurrence throughout the show, including Calgary Mayor Dave Bronconnier.
