KOOZA

KOOZA は、世界野中に自分の居場所を探し求めるメランコリックで孤独なイノセントの物語です。

KOOZA は Cirque du Soleil の原点回帰ともいうべき作品で、 アクロバットとクラウンの芸という伝統的サーカスの 2 つの要素を融合させたものです。このショーでは、人間の強さと弱さを表現する肉体の能力に焦点が当てられています。さまざまなものが多彩に融合する中で、あからさまなスラップスティック的ユーモアが強調されます。

旅を続けるイノセントは、王、トリックスター、すり、感じの悪い旅行者とそのしつけの悪い犬など、さまざまなコミカルなキャラクターに出会います。

KOOZA では、強さと弱さ、大笑いと微笑、混乱と調和の間で、恐怖、アイデンティティ、認識、力というテーマが追究されています。ショーの舞台は、驚き、スリル、失意、勇敢さ、熱意などで満ち溢れた、刺激的でエキゾチックな世界です。

KOOZA - Set Design

KOOZA’s set evokes a public square that metamorphoses into a circus ring. The circular stage provides the audience with excellent sight lines through 260 degrees.

There has been no attempt to conceal or disguise the acrobatic equipment. The structure of the big top is always in full view. Everything is done out in the open with simplicity and transparency in order to concentrate the audience’s attention on the artists and the acrobatic performances.

  • The stage is dominated by one major set element, a traveling tower called the Bataclan, which alters the configuration of the performance space as it moves.
  • The Bataclan moves artists in and out of the spotlight, serves as a bandstand and is flanked by two curved staircases.
  • The decoration of the Bataclan is inspired by Hindu culture, Pakistani buses and Indian jewelry.
  • Overlooking the Bataclan, the giant fabric structure called the Void was printed with motifs inspired by the internal structure of leaves to give it a decidedly organic look.
  • The “sails” that frame the Bataclan can be opened and closed like the petals of an enormous flower by just two people using ropes and pulleys.
  • The surface of the stage is decorated to look like a starry sky, and in the center ring is a graphic representation of the sky in Montreal on the night of the first public performance.
  • The stage is ringed by recessed lighting units that cast a warm glow up into the faces of the performers, much like the footlights of a 19th-century theater.
  • The diameter of the top of the stage is 36’; it is 42’ at the bottom step. This is the diameter of a standard circus ring set by the minimum size of a ring horses could comfortably be at gallop within.
  • It is the highest stage ever designed for our shows (39” vs 30-36” usually), as we needed space underneath for the Jack-in-the-Box hydraulics (which propels 6-7 feet up in the air).
  • Technicians and artists travel under the stage on dollies like mechanics use to roll under cars.
  • The musician pit is located on the upper level of the structure.

“I wanted to capture the essence of circus itself by creating a scenographic environment that offers true proximity to the audience and where danger is palpable.” — Stéphane Roy
