Even with having my baby girl earlier this month, I couldn’t miss out on Cirque du Soleil’s OVO coming to the Maverik Center February 22-27, 2017. A week before my due date I was able to attend a preview event for OVO at The Leonardo. We were treated to a sneak peek of the show as well as a live cold-blooded creatures demonstration. It’s hard to say who loved it more – myself or my kids!
These masks were a blast to create and made the kiddos excited to see the costumes in OVO. Aren’t the costume details fantastic?
In case you are new to OVO, here is what you can expect:
OVO 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. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled 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 overflowing 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.
My sons are especially excited because of the insects. It will be fun to see how the insect movements are incorporated into the acrobatics and antics. At the OVO preview party, we were treated to close-up look of Kim’s Cold Blooded Creatures. My kids got much closer than I did!
And now for the fun part! I am giving away a family four pack to the Thursday, 7:30 pm, showing of OVO at the Maverik Center – enter below! Your family is going to love it!
Tickets are available via SmithTix.
