The show itself is a delight for the senses. From the colors of the costumes to the sounds of the jungle and even the sweet scent of flowers, all play with the on-lookers as the big top transforms into a virtual living jungle. Of course, all of the sensory tickling serves as a backdrop to the athleticism and strength the performers possess.
We talked with the production manager, Rob Naumann, who noted that this is "his favorite show at the moment and is designed to have each audience member leaving happy with a smile on their face."
Marking the 25th show in 25 years, OVO will be touring around Oz for the next year stopping in major cities throughout the country. Don't fret if your travels aren't bringing you Australia soon; we are assured the show will be visiting Asia, Japan, South and Central America.
