The internationally renowned Cirque du Soleil returns to Australia this year with a new big top production, the critically acclaimed and family friendly OVO. A headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, OVO opened in Sydney on Thursday September 13 in The Showring at the Entertainment Quarter.
Produced by Cirque du Soleil, the show OVO is an immersion into the teeming and energetic world of insects. OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful 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.
Cirque du Soleil is a Canadian entertainment company, self-described as a “dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment.”
You can grab some cheap tickets from $47 which seems pretty good for such an amazing show. It will leave you with your mouth dropping wide open in amazement as you wonder how the hell these acrobats learn these tricks! I spent the whole show wondering how much they injured themselves before they could expertly walk on a rope or swing or do back flips through hoops and bars hoisted high in the ceiling!
My favourite skit was when a clown rode along a rope on a unicycle with no wheel, just the wheel socket wobbled along the rope which loosely hung above the ground.
The last shows are now playing as all the drama and excitement of the tricks, twists and craziness will end on the 4th of November so grab the remaining tickets quick smart to avoid disappointment.
