Behind The Scenes of Cirque Du Soleil Ovo
Cirque Du Soleil Ovo is in town for a string of shows this week, and I had the pleasure of getting a behind the scenes tour!
Ovo is the story of a group of insects that are introduced to a newcomer with an egg or ovo. He ends up falling in love with one of their group members and thus the two worlds must find a way to get along and accept each other. Of course all this is told through wonderful humor, music, acrobatics, and awesome stunts and tricks I don't even have words for.
I also had the opportunity to see the show last night. It is beautiful. The music and the performers all work together beautifully.
My favorite performers were the human trapeze, the aerial butterflies, and the trampoline stunts.
An honorable mention, but mainly because it made me uncomfortable, was the contortionist spider person who had their whole body weight balancing on their teeth! Putting together my fear of losing my teeth and the fact that human bodies shouldn't bend that way, I had anxiety.
Now let me show you behind the scenes at Cirque Du Soleil.
