Las Vegas is known for its outstanding entertainment, and its live entertainment some of the best in the world. Cirque du Soleil’s resident show Zumanity is a sinfully sensual circus exclusive to Las Vegas and the New York New York Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Zumanity is an essential show to see when visiting Las Vegas.
Unlike all other Cirque du Soleil productions and tours, Zumanity is the first adult-themed production from the contemporary circus troupe. Zumanity performs for an 18 or over crowd singularly at the New York New York Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. It’s an edgy, sexy, and provocative show focusing on human sexuality from a voyeur’s perspective. Erotic and sexual art, dance, song, and acrobatics are at the core of Zumanity.
Part burlesque and part Cabaret, Zumanity is a seductive twist on reality, making the provocative playful and the forbidden electrifying. Leave inhibitions at the door, let loose, and marvel in a sexy thrill ride of sensational acrobatics and naughty fun.
Zumanity is a cabaret-style Cirque show that opened in September 2003. Zumanity was originally conceptualized by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté who wanted something completely new and different for Cirque audiences that wouldn’t detract from other Cirque shows on tour in Vegas or in residency. The chance to do something more riskier material served as the main reason for Laliberté to produce Zumanity.
“Previous Cirque shows have 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,” said Guy Laliberté . “We like to live new experiences. Zumanity deals with some of those experiences.”
With original concept idea by Guy Laliberté, Zumanity was written and directed by Dominic Champagne and Rene Richard Cyr. The production was composed and arranged by Simon Carpentier. The Creation director of Zumanity is Andrew Watson, while Thierry Mugler is the creator and costume designer. Choreographers of Zumanity are Debra Brown and French male-high heel dancer/choreographer Yanis Marshall.
One of the longest running resident shows of Las Vegas, Zumanity is an exhilarating and fun experience for anyone visiting the New York New York Las Vegas Hotel & Casino and Las Vegas.
