OVO - Cirque Du Soleil
Expect a dazzling explosion of colour and nature at this years SPECTACULAR Cirque du Soleil show OVO, celebrating a wonderful world of insects. OVO, meaning “egg” (in Portuguese), is a stampede into a colourful ecosystem bustling with life and energy, where insects flutter, play and fight whilst looking for love in a non-stop riot of movement. It's love at first sight when a gawky insect arrives in this bustling community and a glorious ladybug catches his eye – the feeling is mutual.
As ever the death defying acrobatics are jaw-dropping. Over 50 artists from 17 different countries will leave you totally mesmerised and aching to be more flexible yourself. We were totally mad for the Russian Cradle trapeze artists who literally threw their somersaulting partners from platform to platform and the hugely talented clambering lizards who scaled a vast climbing wall before bouncing and tumbling onto cleverly disguised trampolines. We were also amazed by the hugely flexible Dragonfly who could bend his body in ways we had never seen before!
Look out for London gymnast Alanna Baker, 2011 gymnastic European Champion, who plays the role of the Black Spider.
It's a two hour extravengaza - get ready for a treat!
Dates: until 4 March
