The popular Cirque du Soleil brings its latest show, KOOZA, to Vancouver, starting Thursday, July 22. Fans around the world have enjoyed the colourful costumes and the impossible acrobatic feats made to look easy. Here are a few facts you may not know about the Cirque:

– Entire site set-up takes seven days, including the Tapis Rouge VIP tent, entrance, rehearsal tents, box office, administrative offices, and a kitchen and dining area for cast and crew
– The “village” travels from city to city in 59 tractor trailers

Tickets are now available online or by phoning 1.800.450.1480.
