LE NOIR 2014: The Intimate Side of Cirque Now Playing at the Mastercard Theatre, Marina Bay Sands until 29 June 2014
Le Noir, think of it as Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: sexy, sultry, seductive, thrilling, endorphin booster, a complete package of top calibre (and beautifully sculpted!) circus artists/performers giving its audience a bewildering visual feast. From start to finish, they have maintained the high energy LE NOIR demands. Le Noir 2014 has a wider and more intimate representation this time around. Aside from the additional act such as The Wheel of Death, Le Noir proudly boasts of a story. The show incarnates the intimate tableau of love and intimacy. Le Noir is beautifully choreographed, every performance is heart-stopping, a show not to be missed.
LE NOIR is more than a show, it’s a theatrical experience that engages every sense and has been designed to be enjoyed by audiences young and old. Twenty of the very best cirque performers from around the world, many of them formerly from Cirque du Soleil, are the centerpiece of this production and will enthrall crowds in this spell-binding theatrical journey. Le Noir combines crowd interaction and humor with perfection. The overall routines were flawless leaving the audience craving for more.
Watch out for the infamous Wheel of Death, one of the most dangerous circus acts. Simon Painter, Le Noir Producer mentioned it’s the real thing, meaning it’s the actual wheel, no harness, no safety nets. While being interviewed, the Wheel of Death Performers (Wheeloco) seemed so nonchalant about the danger of it. When asked what’s going on inside their heads while on the WOD, they answered in a snap: “Nothing. Our main target is to take care of each other. Focus and who knows what’s up next?”

I would highly recommend you book the VIP section (just around the circular stage); genius set-up by Painter. Instead of the usual arena type, Le Noir ‘s audience enjoy a 360 degree view of the mind blowin’ performances. Not only to feel as one with the show and casts but you feel the “intimacy” which is the theme of LE NOIR. Artists facial expressions up close? Yes please.
