"I work with movement and ideas. Everything that moves fascinates me," says Deborah Colker, Director of Ovo. "And I love to subvert space [and] ideas to find new bodies and new movements." When she was young girl in Rio de Janiero (Brazil), Colker loved music and wanted nothing more than to dance. But this was a time when mothers decided what was best for their little girls, so she ended up playing volleyball. Dance and volleyball and school proved to be too much, so Deborah had to give up dancing. But she never forgot her dreams. "And then, when I was sixteen years, I had a great crisis. I stopped everything and I came back to dance. And dance, I think that could synthesize for me art and sport."

The cast of OVO comprises 53 performing artists 13 countries and director Deborah Colker, a renowned choreographer, has integrated dance movements into many of the numbers in the show. OVO features many acrobatic acts including a stunning flying trapeze act: Six flyers fly as high as 14m, making this act the biggest of its kind ever presented under a Grand Chapiteau by Cirque du Soleil. This act is the most difficult in the world to execute in terms of the distance between stations. It combines many circus disciplines: banquine, Russian swing and swinging chair. The finale features 20 artists running, jumping and leaping straight up an 8m vertical wall!
