One question arises when thinking about Cirque Du Soleil’s provocative adult presentation, “Zumanity” *(Las Vegas) Does it help us embrace our sexuality or does it continue setting unreachable and undesirable standards? Join the discussion!
Cirque Du Soleil has been presenting Zumanity since 2003 at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, showing us another side of Cirque Du Soleil, a more sensual perspective of the show, a side that comes along with the hypersexualized atmosphere of Las Vegas.
Does Zumanity helps to embrace human sexuality?
Sexy, funny and musical are some of the words used to describe the burlesque themed show in Las Vegas.
Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté wanted to explore outside the bubble of family entertainment and immerse into a world that for some people still a taboo, human sexuality.
“Our previous shows have all been family-oriented and politically correct, which is great, but we’re human beings, we won’t hide it. We’re a bunch of happy campers. We like to live new experiences. Zumanity deals with some of those experiences.” –Laliberte for Celebrity Radio.
So the answer is yes, the acrobats reveal in front the public’s eyes the capacity and strength of the human body, how the acrobats merge sexuality with art is a clear revelation of what human’s passion is capable to accomplish.
Erotic shows and sexual scenes in the entertainment biz are commonly linked to porn or strip clubs’ industries, especially in Las Vegas. Zumanity came to break with this idea, its purpose is to showcase human sexuality not as a filthy act of sin, but as the complex and beautiful art and the essential part of our lives that it actually is.
