Cirque du Soleil's trademark blue-and-yellow big top will open in Sydney on 25 August 2016, and move onto Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.

This is Cirque du Soleil's eighth Big Top show to tour the Land Down Under. This year's tour, KOOZA honours the traditions of the circus, delivered in Cirque's typical sparkling, colourful manner. Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins, and returns to Australia to showcase the fundamental human elements of what circus really is.
