'Zumanity' is a journey through the land of the erotic
Up and down the Las Vegas Strip, productions thrill audiences with feats of strength and spine-tingling aerial acrobatics. Then there are shows that incorporate such elements as water and wind, song and dance, humor and hijinks, and bawdiness and naughtiness. However, to find all of this (and a whole lot more) under one roof, one must step inside the world of Zumanity, where a cast of multicultural, multitalented artists in all shapes and sizes tease and please throughout a performance that’s both exotic and erotic.
This provocative production from Cirque du Soleil invites adults to leave their inhibitions at the door of the intimate Zumanity Theatre and indulge in a playful feast for the senses. The titillating fun starts preshow when the plus-size Botero Sisters—dressed in sexy French maid outfits—serve up strawberries and suggestive interplay, and it climaxes with an onstage mock orgy featuring the entire cast (plus two blushing guests plucked from the audience). Along the way, Edie, the Mistress of Sensuality who plays the role of Zumanity’s ringleader, engages the crowd while acts and props are ushered on- and offstage.
About those acts and props: We could reveal details … but where’s the fun in that?
