bull soleil cirque erotic

Created by Rene Richard Cyr and Dominic Champagne, Zumanity has been playing at the New York, New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada since 2003. Zumanity is a production from Cirque du Soleil made only for those ages 18 and over. It is called the “sensual side” of Cirque du Soleil and features music, dancing, and acrobats with an erotic theme. The production was created especially for the trendy Las Vegas hotel and casino as something more than the standard Vegas show.

Those going to see the Las Vegas Zumanity show know they are not in for the usual fare from Cirque du Soleil as soon as they enter the venue. Ushers in faux-nude clothing seat guests while the pre-show antics take place. When the show begins, the transvestite host introduces the acts, which are, at their core, basic acts of Cirque du Soleil combined with basic striptease moves. The performers all give the illusion of total nakedness, although if you sit up front, flesh-toned bodysuits become more apparent.

Performances in Zumanity include the following:

• Edie, Mistress of Sensuality – She is the hostess of the evening.
• Dick and Izzy are swinging sex therapists who know how to have a good time.
• Wassa performs an energetic tribal dance.
• Waterbowl – Two beautiful women swim in a large glass of water.
• Hoops – Julia,the erotic schoolgirl, loves hula hoops.
• Rose Boy Willie Bronco performs an erotic male striptease.
• Hand-2-Hand is a hand-balancing act unlike any seen before.
• Dislocation – Arslan enjoys performing for his dominatrices.
• Dance on TV – Thin and beautiful Felix is a gymnast with one thing on her mind.
• 2 Men – An intensely choreographed dance of gay lovers.
• Straps – Louise like the pleasure of receiving pain.
• Tissus – Unrequited love is finally overcome.
• Midnight Bath – Love is not only for the bedroom.
• Wind – Marcela performs one the most erotic flamenco dances in history.
• Orgy – The full cast has fun with each other using their own unique talents.
• Extravaganza – The cast members walk the catwalk one-by-one amid horns and drums.

Critics are on both sides of the fence for Zumanity in Las Vegas. Some have called it cynical, saying the overt sexually ruins what has always been a sensual show. They also say the experimental style falls short and performers never seem to get it right. Other critics call it simply wonderful and recommend that no one in Vegas miss it. They say the show approaches sexuality from a truly unique perspective, blending cabaret with burlesque to form an experience not soon forgotten.

Zumanity in Las Vegas plays at both 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday –Sunday. Tickets start at $69 and go up from there. It is recommended to book tickets three months in advance, but they can also be bought from resale ticketing agents and on many ticket exchange websites.
