One Drop And Cirque du Soleil Call Italian Artist Rabarama to Las Vegas

The famous contemporary artist Rabarama invited to the One Night for One Drop event in Las Vegas, donates the sculpture “Chi-Chi“ for the auction to benefit One Drop.

Las Vegas, NV, March 13, 2013 --( The Italian artist Rabarama (, so well known for her giant humanoids sculptures decorated in esoteric patterns that had been exhibited in public places from Paris to Shanghai, has been invited to participate in One Night for One Drop, a global philanthropy event in Las Vegas, a one night-only original production specially created by Cirque du Soleil benefitting One Drop.

In fact her art is near to the spectacular, colored aesthetics that made Cirque du Soleil shows so appreciated in the world and the poses of her creatures are dramatically dynamical and suggestive, resembling a strange kind of ritual dance.

Her sculpture “Chi-Chi,” inspired to the I-Ching, will be auctioned during the event and presented to the public in an original, unique show imagined by Cirque du Soleil, on World Water Day March, 22 in the “O” Theatre at Bellagio, Las Vegas, USA.

Rabarama career started in the ‘90s in collaboration with the representing gallery Vecchiato with the first exhibitions in Mexico and the USA. Then her giants were appreciated by public and critic in cities around the world (Paris, Beijing, Shanghai, Miami, Florence, etc) and at the 54th Biennial in Venice.

One Drop is a philanthropy organization founded by Cirque du Soleil’s owner Guy Laliberté and its main aim is to ensure that water is accessible to all in the world: "One person dies every 20 seconds because they don't have access to clean water," said Laliberté. "It is one of our planet's most pressing, yet most addressable problems, if we focus the amount of attention and resources it deserves."
