"Ovo," which premiered in Montreal 10 years ago, has been seen by more than 6 million people worldwide across 22 countries, according to Cirque du Soleil.
Critics have called “OVO” a “poetic energy of discovery.” The production features acrobatic dancers dressed in colorful insect costumes, acting out how insects work, fight, and look for love – set, of course, to high-energy music.
Cirque Du Soleil describes the show as “teeming with life.”
“Their home is filled with biodiversity, beauty, action and moments of quiet emotion,” the description for “OVO” reads. “The awestruck insects are intensely curious when a mysterious egg appears, representing the enigma and cycles of their lives.”
The show's cast includes 52 performing artists from 14 countries specializing in showstopping acrobatic acts such as aerial straps, hand balancing and contortion.
