One of Cirque du Soleil’s most iconic productions, OVO, returned to Victoria Thursday night with its high-energy and high-acrobatic production.

OVO, which means egg in Portuguese, whisked Victorians through a breathtaking trip into the imagination of bugs.

Fortunately, if you missed last night’s show, the event is performing another six times at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre from Friday, June 17th to the 19th.

The show is described as a colorful intrusion 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.

From mighty crickets bouncing off trampolines to a hypnotic spider contorting inside her web, OVO exudes extraordinary showmanship to tickle the imagination.

Funny and chaotic, yet adorable and wonderful, OVO charms our inner child with its sweet exuberance. With 100 people from 25 different countries, including 52 artists, OVO brings to the stage high-level acrobatic acts redefining the limits of the human body.

Since its opening in Montreal in 2009, OVO has thrilled more than 7 million people in 155 cities in 26 different countries.

Limited tickets are still available but if you can’t make it or just want a sneak peek into the show, here are 15 photos take by Victoria Buzz photographer, Rob Porter of RMS Media:
