Last night I took my husband and older daughter to see the Cirque Du Soleil show OVO at the Maverick Center. Going to a Cirque Du Soleil show has been on my bucket list forever and I am so glad that I got to cross it off.
It was absolutely amazing! I loved it from the first second to the last. All of the acts were amazing, there wasn't a single one I didn't like and it kept my 8-year-old completely entertained which was fantastic. My jaw hit the floor in amazement more than once and I laughed out loud a lot. We will definitely be buying tickets the next time they are in town. See ticket information and some of my favorite acts below!
DIABOLO ~ Firefly
In a mix of high-speed Diabolo and seemingly impossible juggling a firefly sends one, two, three
and finally an astonishing four spinning spools arcing very high in the sky and back to earth in
Artist: Tony FREBOURG (France)
DUO STRAPS ~ Butterflies
Merging hand-to-hand, ballet and aerial contortion in an impressive flying act, this pair of
Butterflies performs a pas-de-deux on aerial straps that allows them to swoop and land, leap
and fly in perfect unison. Artists: Catherine AUDY (Canada), Alexis TRUDEL (Canada)
RUSSIAN CRADLE ~ Scarabs
In a stunning aerial act, a group of scarabs soar high above the stage, from
both edges to the middle. A distance of 6 meters separates the catchers!
Artists: Nansy DAMIANOVA (Canada), Denys DYKY (Ukraine), Volodymyr FEDYNA
(Ukraine), Alexander GROL (Russia), Nina KARTSEVA (Russia), Volodymyr KLAVDICH
(Ukraine), Camille SANTERRE-GERVAIS (Canada), Maryna SERGIIENKO (Ukraine), Dmytro
RYBKIN ( Ukraine), Olga SHCHERBATYKH (Ukraine), Inna TESLENKO (Ukraine), Timur
SLACKWIRE ~ Male Spider
In a tour-de-force performance a spider defies gravity and physics in a succession of
seemingly impossible feats of strength and balance as he traverses a wire that appears to
give him no support. At one point he hangs at a 45-degree angle over the ground, some 15
feet below, and he tops that with an upside-down unicycle act. And the wire is in almost constant
motion up and down, adding to the degree of difficulty. Artist: JIANMING Qiu (China)
