What is OVO?

Wondering about the name? OVO means egg in Portuguese, and references the insect theme of the show. The show offers a bizarre insight into the world of insects through colourful characters and impressive acrobatics.

OVO is a touring circus production by Cirque du Soleil that premiered in Montreal in 2009. Cirque du Soleil is the most famous circus in the world, and started life in 1984 by the street performers Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix.

OVO logo represents an insect. The two O’s represent the eyes and the V forms the nose and antennas.

OVO conveys the story of insects – Cirque-style – as it brings to life ants, spiders, crickets and dragons through music and dance. OVO uses breathtaking acrobatics highlighting the unique personalities and abilities of selected insect species.

Be dazzled as you watch mighty crickets bouncing on trampolines, and spiders dancing inside webs. Crawling with fun, OVO is a non-stop riot of energy and movement that uncovers the natural world at our feet.
