Popular Acrobatic Act Will Focus On Insects

November 29, 2016 | Posted In: General

The world-renowned acrobatic act known as Cirque Du Soleil will be staging a new performance that focuses on the movements and the general physical nature of insects and spiders. The performance has been titled “Ovo”, and it will premier during the spring season of 2017.

A press release from the performance group described the upcoming insect-inspired event as showing the lifecycles, work and physical movement of spiders and insects in a manner that is meant to educate. The word “ovo” means “egg” in Portuguese, and this word was chosen as the title because the performance will begin with a single insect egg that hatches into hundreds of tiny and bustling insects.

The highlight of the show will include a high-flying act, in which performers operate together from ropes suspended from the ceiling. This is one example of the spider-like imagery to be expected from the show. Tickets go on sale in December.

Do you think that it is important to educate the public and the young about insects, and the benefits they provide for mother earth?
