One of the many benefits of living in a large City is that Great events and shows come to you. Right now visiting our City (Toronto) is Cirque Du Soleil with their new show “Kooza.”

We had the good fortune to see this show on opening night (August 9th) with 5 members of my Family who were visiting from England. This event proved to be a fitting Grande Finale to their visit. Being their last night, what better send off could you possibly have!

For those of you not acquainted with Cirque Du Soleil (Circus of the Sun) a brief description may be in order. While it may be called a Circus, there are no animals! Only Humans, if you can call someone who can double over – BACKWARDS – human. The show is two hours of pure eye candy, from the muscled toned acrobats, to the fantastic custom made costumes for each and every performer the shows are a feast for the senses. One word of warning – you may end up catching flies due to the fact that your mouth will be open for 99% of the performance!

Following is a promo for this show Kooza, now on a North American Tour. Don’t feel left out if you don’t live in North America, there are other Cirque shows circling the globe, from Brazil to Japan and Australia. Once you’ve seen one show, it will become your ambition to see them all!

Enjoy the clip.

Unfortunately Kooza is not yet available on DVD, however many of their other performances are. Check out “La Nouba“. Unless you intend to travel to Orlando, Florida, seeing it on DVD is going to be your only option.

This next track is from La Nouba and is the “Fast Track”, trampolining taken to a new level. My only comment is that seeing them on youtube is okay, seeing them on DVD in your own home is great….seeing them live is out of this world!
