OVO is teeming with life. Insects work, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy in motion.

A magnificent ladybug captures the eye of an awkward, unusual insect who has just moved into this lively neighborhood, and the two instantly fall in love.

Ovo means "egg"’ in Portuguese. The show plunges the audience into the hidden universe alive at our feet; an ecosystem teeming with life and unseen beings - insects that work, eat, crawl, flutter, feast, fight and court among each other in an ongoing explosion of energy and movement.

An exciting Cirque du Soleil experience, 'OVO' is a colorful immersion into a new day in the life of insects; a non-stop riot of energy and movement. Through show-stopping acrobatics highlighting the unique personalities and abilities of selected insect species, 'OVO' explores the beauty of biodiversity in all its contrasts and vibrancy.
