OVO is a headlong rush into a colourful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects' home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.
When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives.
It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.
OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.
I have to say - sometimes Cirque creeps me out a little - I joke that it's all these people in freaky costumes walking around in slow motion. But I LOVE the circus-type acts. The acrobatics are amazing and so fun to watch! Here's a preview video of the show on YouTube.
I'm really excited to be able to get to see the show thanks to the folks at Cirque de Soleil and I'm getting a peek into their Tapis Rouge area! If you're looking for a way to impress clients or develop business relationships - this is DEFINITELY something for you to check out.
