Cirque du Soleil OVO Coming to Bangor this Summer

Is there any show so associated with whimsy, grace, and alien beauty as that of Cirque du Soleil? The Quebec-based traveling show is recognized across the globe for its artistry and entertainment, which seeks to elevate itself above the average circus and invoke a more emotional experience in their consumers. You’re in luck, because the new Cirque du Soleil OVO show is on its way to the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor this upcoming June 2016, so residents of Bangor, Maine have the opportunity to experience this breathtaking show for themselves.

The theme of Cirque du Soleil’s OVO show revolves around the astoundingly familiar and yet noticeably alien lives of insects. Filled with color, vibrance, and energy, these insects play with one another, battle one another, and search for a mate against the setting of the wild, strange, and sometimes foreign backdrop of nature itself.

In the show, an egg mysteriously appears in the midst of the insects, upsetting their everyday lives, and they find themselves drawn to this object, which represents the cycles of their lives, as well as the enigma of everyday life itself. As all of this is happening, life as usual continues — from individuals finding love to the busy rhythm of the daily insect routine.

The Cirque du Soleil OVO show’s name has both an obvious meaning and is a visual pun. The word “ovo” is Portuguese for “egg,” while the word itself could be interpreted as an insect’s face, with the two O’s representing bulbous eyes. The show will take place at the Cross Insurance Center from Thursday, June 2nd through Sunday, June 5th.
