Discover why Cirque du Soleil will cure your January Blues!
If you’re in need of a little bit of sunshine this winter, look no further!
Cirque du Soleil, aka ‘the Circus of the Sun’, is coming to town with their new show ‘OVO’ and they know exactly how to light up a stage: Winter blues be gone!
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. 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 is 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.
And if you happened to be walking around central London on the 14th of December, there is a chance that you have come across what was very different from the average selfie:
Including a giant spider in action and a couple of bugs, Cirque Du Soleil’s OVO cast were posing for a London photoshoot. Better still, catch them at their best at the stage of the iconic Royal Albert Hall in January.
It is with reason that the troupe has come a long way from its humble street performer roots in Montreal, as they take over the world with skill, artistry and grace, quickly becoming one of the world’s best known performance groups of all time.
Still need convincing? We’ve put together 5 great reasons why one should not miss the opportunity to grab a seat for a performance of the uplifting, life-affirming and vibrant OVO:
- Cirque Du Soleil’s every production is a new story
Cirque du Soleil is so much more than a few acrobatics and jugglers – every new show is an enchanting story! From the ice-covered mind of Crystal, to the curio cabinet of an ambitious inventor, each show entices you into a weird and wonderful world. It’s not just a circus, it’s a thrilling experience that will have you at the edge of your seat!
- Each costume is unique
The legendary costumes are incredibly detailed and custom-designed in-house. With the entire cast measured head-to-toe, you can be sure they’ll be showed off to perfection.
- Diversity is praised
Unlike some types of shows, Cirque du Soleil praises diverse body types and performers that look unique. In a world that often tries hard to make us conform, Cirque du Soleil wants its artists to stand out and be proud of who they are! What’s not to like about that?
- They have a Las Vegas residency
Cirque du Soleil have performed resident shows in the mighty Las Vegas for more than two decades now! To have staying power in this city that never sleeps means you’ve really got something special! Their spectacular sets, show-stopping costumes and awesome acrobatics have made them one of the top things to do in Las Vegas. Luckily, this winter you won’t have to travel that far…
- New show ‘OVO’ is teeming with life
The performers that hit the London streets this December were giving Londoners a little taste of the never-seen-in-the-UK before show ‘OVO’, a colorful riot that dives into our ecosystem, uncovering the world of insects while being a little bit more flexible than David Attenborough! Expect non-stop energy and movement as colorful crickets, silky spiders, and flexible fleas take to the stage to take your breath away like only the Cirque Du Soleil can do! OVO is a show that’s guaranteed to get the whole family buzzing for days.
