See our behind the scenes interview during the setup of Cirque Du Soliel Ovo at Boardwalk Hall!
Check out this overview written and directed by Deborah Colker:
OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, utter, play, ght and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty lled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.
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’s 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.
OVO is over owing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.
NAME – The name OVO means “egg” in Portuguese. This timeless symbol of the life cycle and birth of numerous insects represents the underlying thread of the show. Graphically, OVO hides an insect in its name: The two “Os” represent the eyes while the letter “V” forms the nose.
