In 2003 Spymonkey and director Cal McCrystal were invited by Cirque du Soleil to create and perform the comedy numbers for ‘Zumanity – Another Side of Cirque du Soleil’, Cirque’s first production of an adult burlesque show in its purpose-built theatre at New York New York Hotel Casino, Las Vegas.
Spymonkey’s surreal and irreverent style made them the uproarious highlight of the show. Between its opening in August 2003 and Spymonkey’s much mourned departure in August 2005 their numbers in ‘Zumanity’ were enjoyed by over half a million people. It remains one of Cirque’s most successful shows.
