The legendary blue and yellow big top from Cirque du Soleil is back and it’s more exciting than ever! This time, the acrobatic entertainment company brings Kooza to the main stage. Kooza will be playing from now till August 20 2017.
Presented in a medley of song, dance and acrobatic displays, Kooza is all about taking audiences on a journey of self-discovery through “The Innocent” — a character that represents our inner child.
One of the many acts bound to excite and thrill viewers is the Teeterboard act. Essentially, the Teeterboard is a catapult that flings and flips acrobats in the air. These acrobats then execute somersaults and twists mid-air!
Here’s a sneak peek of what it looks like:
We spoke to Talita de Lima, a high-flyer — who did the flip in the clip above — in the Teeterboard act to find out a little more on how she copes with travelling, eating right and staying fit for the show. Having been part of the Kooza team for 8 years, Talita sheds light on what she’s learned from travelling with the circus.
