Cirque de Soleil’s current production at the Santa Monica Pier, "OVO," is teeming with insects working, eating, crawling, fluttering, playing, fighting and looking for love in a riotous expression of energy and movement.
The story starts when a mysterious egg appears. The insects are curious about this iconic object that represents mystery and their life cycle. When a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community, a fabulous ladybug catches his eye and it's love at first sight.
The bug costumes are exquisitely creative and the production blossoms with contrasts revealing the secret insect world “as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic.”
OVO’s creator Deborah Colker joins Larry to talk about Cirque’s latest innovation.
