January's can't-miss events
Bug on a wire
No monkeys to be found in this circus act. Ants, ladybugs and dragonflies — to name a few — are among the curious creatures that comprise the energetic ecosystem of Cirque du Soleil’s “OVO.” Insects of this colorful community leap and fly to great heights with exploding energy and gravity-defying stunt work as they look for love and seek answers to life’s curiosities. Entangle yourself in the action-packed performances of this entomological utopia before it buzzes elsewhere.
BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave. $37-$151. 7:30 p.m., Wednesday-Friday; 4 and 7:30 p.m., Saturday; 1:30 and 5 p.m., Sunday. cirquedusoleil.com/ovo
