Cirque du Soleil's Koozå marks a return to the show's circus roots, with clowns, contortionists, acrobats and more executing follies and feats of strength, all orchestrated by The Trickster as he tells the story of The Innocent (pictured center).
Many of the performers created their own characters and designed their own stunts for the show.
The Trickster, played by performer Jason Berrent, had multiple intricate outfit changes throughout the night's show.
The circus tent is small and the show is interactive, with characters running through the aisles and stage acts that include audience member participation.
At one point, clowns showered each section with confetti, much to the enjoyment of adults and children alike.
Every circus performance always needs at least one clown — this guy, known as The King, acted as the night's MC, directing a duo of underlings and making the audience laugh.
The tight rope performers began their daring act with nary a net nor a wire.
Performers made human pyramids around one brave soul, who balanced high in the air on a slim pole.
A unicycling duo entertained the crowd with the multiple stunts that would have been difficult with two feet on the ground.
The "Balancing on Chairs" act keeps viewers on the edge of their own seats as the performer defies gravity, slowly adding to the height of the chair tower.
The trapeze artist looked the part — from her hair to her outfit, everything matched. Just a few moments later, she was lifted high into the air.
Three contortionists baffled the crowd with unbelievable flexibility.
The performances aren't limited to the daring — here, a character sings.
The clowns grabbed a few lucky audience members to be a part of an act. This woman crawled out of the stage a while after their disappearing magic trick.
