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.”

About David Samuels and Esposito’s

Esposito's Finest Sausage ProductsAt age 34, in the aftermath of 9-11, David Samuels decided to leave his career of 13 years as a management consultant to run his own business. At the same time, Esposito’s Finest Quality Sausage was in transition due to the death of its founder a few years earlier. Originally operating under the name Giovanni Esposito and Sons, Al Esposito had opened a wholesale sausage division in the back of the store which became Esposito’s Finest Quality Sausage Products. When Al passed away, his only daughter took possession the business.

Al’s daughter and her husband knew that a family member, David Samuels, was looking for a company to own and run. With David’s history in management, he knew the company had a great potential for growth, but he also knew that the family-developed recipes and core processing practices made Esposito’s what it was, so it was his intention to remain intact and true to their origins.

As owner, David has expanded Esposito’s product lines, as well as greatly increasing their production capacity.  Now you can even buy Esposito’s sausages on Amazon.com.
