Like Cortéo, KOOZÅ (Sanskrit for "treasure" or "box") is another show that goes back to Cirque du Soleil's older styles. Premiering in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 19 April 2007, the show's music is often inspired by South Asian (Indian) sounds. KOOZÅ makes use of a large traveling tower on the stage called a "bataclan". The bataclan moves over the course of the show and reconfigures the performing space.
This show was directed by David Shiner, who had previously worked as a clown in Cirque's production of Nouvelle Expérience. He was another example of Cirque's trend of using new directors for each new performance. His past experience being a clown and working with the Swiss National Circus ("Circus Knie") are an influence on the lighthearted and whimsical nature of the KOOZÅ production.
