LE NOIR- The Intimate Side of Cirque

LE NOIR, a brand new circus spectacular is here in Singapore.

Are you ready for it?

For the first time in Singapore, and direct from a sellout season in Tokyo comes LE NOIR, an extraordinary evening of intimate cirque style entertainment starring some of the most incredible acrobatic acts on earth and will open to a star studded affair in Marina Bay Sands.

Let's immerse ourselves in the jaw-dropping spectacle of LE NOIR. 
LE NOIR will be showcasing at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands from now till 7 April 2013.

Grace and I were here at Sands Theatre. We took a photo with the large poster of LE NOIR before we check in.

A gentle reminder: no flash photography is allowed, which was why our photo is dark.

May the show begins.

The Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands is fully transformed to seat audiences around a custom-built circular stage which offer a spectacular 360 degree view of the performance. It creates a unique and intimate experience between the performers and audience. That explained why it is called "The Intimate Side of Cirque", because the performers get real close with the audience through the walkway. Besides that, the circus comedian also engage audience in the act.

20 of the very best cirque performers from all four corners of the globe positioned themselves perfectly immediately after the curtain was drawn down.

The scene was majestic.

They were a group of talented acrobats, musicians, comedians and specialty acts. Many of them were formerly from Cirque du Soleil. They had come together to enthrall the crowds in the spell-binding theatrical journey spanning the three key colour themes. LE NOIR accentuates the darker side of these colours using not only the acts on stage but of every audience member as well. The content is surreal, beautiful, seductive and at time hilariously risqué. 

A hoop suspended from a strap launched the Australian performer, Thomas Worrell,  up to 2 meters above the audience. The act features a blend of flexibility, speed and poetic movement. The opening act in Le Noir epitomized the innocence of the white theme in this section of the show and it got me fascinated.

The beautiful show also combined a visual spectacle via its unique set and lighting design, and performance dynamics. It was just mind blowing.

I must say their performance are really impressive and entertaining. I was awed by their flexibility and acrobatic skill. It was such a breathtaking moments, especially the perform revolved the stage with the meter tall canes. 

Wow! The identical twin sisters performing the duo trapeze.

It was spectacular, adrenaline was rushing while watching their performance. I was awed by their fearless catch and amazing stunts that required trust in each other. They have a great chemistry that is built only between sisters.

Be treated to a visual extravagance through a combination of creative lighting and speed of movement.
The lighting never failed to make the performer the centre of attention.

Holding my breath in disbelief when he balanced himself precariously on the pile of cylinders. 

LE NOIR is indeed a great showcase with world-class performers. They were so natural on stage. I enjoyed every bits of their acts from the comedian host to the incredible and jaw-dropping acrobatic acts. 

There is this saying in Chinese: "台上一分钟,台下十年功"

This simply means one minute of fame on the stage requires ten years of practice.
The performers had put in lots of effort to make this show a success. Let's show them our support by supporting LE NOIR, okay?

I had a good 2 hours watching the seductive, entertaining and impressive performances. It's gonna be the best circus performance I ever watched.

With incredible displays of balance, contortion, stamina and aerial artistry, the skills exhibited by the cast of Le Noir is a show that you don’t want to miss.
