A decade after Cirque du Soleil debuted in China, the Canadian entertainment company is returning with a much more ambitious plan: to bring a touring show to the country every year in addition to a resident show to be unveiled in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, next year.

The first touring show, Kooza, will open in Shanghai on Oct 1, and will be held six days a week for two months before moving to Beijing and five other Chinese cities, which are still to be decided, according to Daniel Lamarre, CEO of the circus company.

"We will have a very intense presence in China, starting October and lasting forever," said Lamarre, adding that another two shows have been on the schedule to tour in China.
