My Day at Cirque du Soleil: OVO
High-flying tricks, precise body movement and death-defying stunts. These elements make up the impressive Cirque du Soleil: OVO tour that's currently onstage at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center in Sioux Falls.
Cirque du Soleil, ('Circus of the Sun') is the largest theatrical entertainment company in the world. Their production of OVO is a colorful, compelling love story that takes place through the eyes of elaborate insects. The circus acts, combined with advanced street entertainment, consists of talented performers from all over the world.
I was fortunate to have a behind-the-scenes tour of the show as prep began on Wednesday, followed by tickets to see the show that evening. The tour's publicist, Nicolas Chabot, filled me in on what it takes to put this show together and described the Brazilian storyline.
Here's our interview and behind-the-scenes footage of the performers practicing prior to the show:
Cirque du Soleil: OVO was an incredible performance that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. If you're looking for something to do this weekend, this family-friendly show surely will not disappoint.
