Straight out from a sold out season in Tokyo comes Le Noir – a cirque style form of entertainment set in an intimate environment in the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, featuring extraordinary acrobatic acts from around the globe. Audiences will be in for a visual feast and brought on a theatrical journey by the performers who showcase the spectrum of personalities they possess using their individual expertise.
Le Noir portrays the vast array of our emotions metaphorically through the colours white, red and black. Witness the seemingly effortless transitions in the cast from purity, passion and darkness.
The limited 1,100 seats for each show ensures an intimate experience with the audience, exceeding the boundaries of the custom-built circular stage. This enables the audience to have a 360-degree view of the talented cast as they carry out stunts you never thought you’d gawk at first-hand, along with their vivid expressions – yes, it’s that close and there are even seats on the stage!
It is only mandatory to be prepared for the numerous jaw-dropping, eye-popping, head-turning and shocking moments.
Twenty of the very best cirque performers go all out to wow the audience and invite us on a theatrical journey without leaving the comfort of our seats. Many of them were also from the well-known Cirque du Soleil, which was just in town last August. (Fun fact: One of the performers was from the famous all-girl group The PussyCat Dolls!)
The Media Preview of Le Noir left us utterly amazed and rather speechless as we judged what they had in store for Singapore. The elaborate costumes, the “dance” of the performers and the choices of music were enough to illuminate the theatre. It was truly a visual spectacle to behold. Such finesse will leave one thoroughly embarrassed of their “gymnastic abilities”.
Le Noir will be in Singapore for a limited 3 weeks (12th March – 7th April) and ticket prices start from SGD$35. Don’t miss this astounding display of contortion, balance, stamina, acrobatic and aerial artistry from twenty of the best circus professionals!
So just what is your darker side?
