Zumanity is a resident cabaret-style seductive twist on reality that offers something new for adventurous visitors to Las Vegas. Zumanity is a departure from the standard Cirque format created by René Richard Cyr and Dominic Champagne. The show is centered on erotic song, dance, acrobatics, and comedy intended to for mature adult audiences. The show gained inspiration from multiple sources. The production was unveiled on September 20, 2003, at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte had been offered the chance to create a new show to which he wanted something completely new and different. In awe of living new experiences, he was interested in the idea of creating a show that explored human sexuality rather than the other family-oriented shows.
On January 20, 2015, the show came with a remake in which 30% of the show was changed from its original concept. The show now features new choreographed dance segments, updated music, costumes, comedic acts, characters, artists, and also multiple acts in which men dance in high heels.
