About KOOZA

KOOZA LogoKOOZA tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world.

KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil: It combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.

Tickets for KOOZA are available online.  The Denver performances run from August 20th through September 27th on the grounds of the Pepsi Center.  If you’re not in Denver, KOOZA is currently performing in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and will also be traveling to Santa Monica and Irvine, California.

Luc Tremblay’s Bio

Since 1980, Luc Tremblay has produced over 40 choreographic works for professional dance, theater and circus companies.  His choreographies for Danse Partout and his theatrical and choreographic direction for the circus company les gens d’R have helped establish his reputation with international audiences and critics.

Also a respected educator, Luc Tremblay has taught at many Canadian and internationally renowned institutions.  Since 1999, Luc Tremblay has worked with Cirque du Soleil as an artisitic coach, artsitic training supervisor and artistic director for the shows La Nouba, DELIRIUM and KOOZA.

For Luc, working at Cirque du Soleil is stimulating  because “excellence is a daily afair.  You have to know how to keep your work fresh, stay creative; you have to be able to work in a team.”

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

[ad#250by250]Way back in January, I had the pleasure of making a complete and total fool of myself, riding a tricycle (among other things) for charity at the Affiliate Summit.  The 2Newbies, Brian Williams and Marc Levin, sponsored me in the event.

Brian and Marc are on a mission to help new internet marketers make money easy online and have released some really fantastic, not to mention, FREE video training material.  Brian and Marc are cool guys, so check them out  at www.fuelingaffiliatewealth.com.  When you’re done there, take a minute to visit them at 2Newbies too.

But, before you go, check out a little video action from that tricycle race.  Just don’t hurt yourself when you end up ROTFL . . .

I’ll be sharing more about the Affiliate Summit and affiliate marketing, so check back to learn more about the masters of affiliate marketing.

Pardon Our Dust . . .

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

We are in the midst of some changes here. First off, you might notice that you’re now at RobMcNealy.com instead of StartupStoryRadio.com. Don’t worry, Startup Story Radio will carry on, but it is being joined soon by video podcasts airing from the “startup bunker.”

As a result of the shift in content and format, we decided to simplify our lives and bring everything together here under one roof.

If you encounter any problems with the site, or the podcast downloads, please let us know. As far as we can tell, the move went pretty smoothly, but there are bound to be a few problems popping up here and there.  The RSS feed for our audio podcasts has remained the same, but if you subscribed to the full blog RSS feed, you’ll need to subscribe to our new feed here.
