Though the shopping opportunities you encounter on the way into Cirque du Soleil’s big top grow more elaborate every year, the actual production this time around is conceptually simpler—less cluttered with outsize conceits, less anxious to overwhelm us with hipitude. And that’s good. Kooza emphasizes acts—teeterboard, high wire, even the wheel of death—over narrative, reflecting a return to traditional circus mode. Much of the creative energy that was previously invested in whimsy has clearly gone into presenting those acts with skill and style. (TA)
