Successful return to Japan by Cirque du Soleil

OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic.

Japanese audiences have once again shown their fascination with Cirque du Soleil, which presented the Japanese premiere of its show OVO last month in Tokyo.

Invited to the event, Claire Deronzier, Québec Delegate General in Tokyo, praised Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté, who was also there to kick off the circus’s tenth Japanese tour in 22 years.

Over the coming year OVO will be staged in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sendai.

OVO reveals the hidden, secret world at our feet — an ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement.

Over 10 million Japanese circus-goers have attended CdS shows over the past 20 years, making Cirque du Soleil one of Québec’s best-known and best-loved creations in the Land of the Rising Sun.
