This week, Liverpool was treated to a spectacular performance at the Echo Arena. OVO, performed by Cirque Du Soleil is the incredible and theatrical story of insects, big and small, hardworking and hilarious. Unlock Liverpool were invited to get up close and personal with the gravity defying bugs.
Currently touring the UK, Cirque Du Soleil guarantees a night to remember. With traditional elements of a circus such as juggling, gravity defying stunts and a ring master, each character who took to the stage perfectly portrayed an insect. From a team of red ants who can juggle kiwi and corn with their feet to a butterfly breaking free from their cocoon by performing a majestic solo contortion on aerial silk, OVO promises to delight, entertain and surprise you with each beautiful and incredible act.
This family friendly show is the perfect escape from reality and tickets are available online, so if you can, book tickets online and catch it in Liverpool, but if not, they will be in Sheffield from August 22nd to the 26th and in Manchester from the 26th of September to the 30th.
Our favourite act since we have taken up slacklining at The Climbing Hangar in Liverpool was the Slackwire Spider. Defying the laws of physics this magnificent creature dares to tempt fate and not only swings at a 45-degree angle from the tightrope, with superhuman balance but he even uses a unicycle to take this to the next level.

With a 20-minute interval during the performance, enjoy popcorn, sweets and drinks before returning to your seats at the Liverpool Echo Arena for the second halve of OVO.
We want to say a massive thank you to the team at Cirque Du Soleil for inviting Unlock Liverpool to watch OVO and witness some of the most incredible circus acts we have ever seen. We were thoroughly entertained and can’t wait for Cirque Du Soleil to return to Liverpool.
