Cirque Du Soleil OVO Sydney Opening Night Review and photos; MiSociety 13 September 2012
Cirque Du Soleil OVO a salute to creativity, artistry and superb human athleticism
Cirque Du Soleil OVO has rolled into Sydney with the opening night audience crammed full with notables, celebrities and media all eager for the next instalment of the magical world of ‘Cirque’.
Cirque Du Soleil OVO proceeded to transport us into the world of mythicised insects with stunningly costumed creatures appearing to defy earth’s gravity as they, twirled, tumbled, flew, flounced and romanced in front, above and around.
OVO, an egg, mysteriously rolls into the teeming ‘Cirque’ ecosystem becoming the catalyst for the pursuing frenzy of honed athleticism and gravity defying feats that Cirque Du Soleil is. The ‘Flight of the Scarabees’, a contemporary trapeze act, was real heart stopping stuff as the bronzed beetle creatures soared overhead in ever increasing feats of … sheer madness’. Imagine getting up in the morning knowing you had ‘that’ to do today!
Crickets crawling and catapulting onto, from, up and down the perpendicular garden wall, flees frolicking, fireflies furling and the magical metamorphosis of a butterfly morphing from the ceiling all left us enthralled. The ‘Carimbo of the Creatura’ concertinaring gymnastics exemplified the mastery of costume enhancing movement that elevates this troupe above all comers.
Michelle Matlock as ‘Ladybug’ is captivating as her romance with ‘Dragonfly’ (Volodymr Hrynchenko) provides the endearing thread through the performance whilst aided and abetted by ‘Ringmaster’ ‘Flipo’ played by the amazing Simon Bradbury.
Cirque Du Soleil OVO, apart from being a salute to creativity, artistry and superb human athleticism whilst also being suitable for all audiences, is a bloody good show.
