#71: Cirque Du Soleil in L.A.

Contortionist Act

Thankfully, we Angelenos don't need to drive all the way to Vegas to see Cirque Du Soleil. This high flying show makes frequent stops in our city, and recently they set up the big top on Santa Monica beach for Kooza. Kooza combines acrobatics and clowning, creating a magnificent show under the big tent on Santa Monica Beach.

While the juggler, tight rope walkers, and wheel of death acts were amazing, the act that really stole the show for me was the one featuring three female contortionists. The craziest part came at 5:00 on the video above. It looked like something from the exorcist, and the crowd went crazy!

Kooza is in town through December. Do check it out, but don't pay full price. You can get discount tickets on Goldstar, or better yet you can get 40% off select dates by signing up for their free Cirque Club. There is not a bad seat in the house because the tent is so small, but do try to get seats toward the center. Seats right behind the sound guy would be awesome because there's nothing obstructing your view.
