Le Noir The Dark Side of Cirque in Marina Bay Sands between 12-29 March 2013

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 will descend on Singapore for the very first time from 12 March 2013. Singapore is invited to enter the captivating world of LE NOIR – a custom-produced cirque show like no other. Designed and built specifically for the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, audiences will be immersed in an extraordinary visual feast using metaphors of white, red and black to describe the diverse range of our personalities.

Carefully engineered with the deliberate intention of making the audience a part of the entertainment, the set designers from Kingsmen in Singapore,have been perfecting the blueprints for months now. With a carefully crafted stage set coupled with the talent of Creative Producer Simon Painter, LE NOIR explores emotions through colours as the cast transforms from beautiful and pure white, then explore the passion of red and culminating with the darkness of Le Noir.

Twenty of the very best cirque performers from all four corners of the globe, many of them formerly from Cirque du Soleil, are the centre piece of this production and will enthrall crowds in this 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. The production is fast paced, extremely funny and above all entertaining.

Mr. Milan Rokic, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia said, “Discovering Le Noir in Tokyo was like a gift. This beautiful show combines a visual spectacle via its unique set and lighting design, and performance dynamics via the amazing production. These artists blew my mind and I am sure they will do the same to our Singapore audiences.”

With months of planning, careful engineering and tireless attention to detail, The Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands will be fully transformed to seat audiences around a custom-built circular stage of about 2.5
meters in diameter giving a spectacular 360 degree view of the performance as it commences. Audiences will be „enclosed‟ within a canopy of curtains designed out of LED lights. For the first time ever, seating at the Sands Theatre will be limited to a little over 1100 seats to create a unique and intimate experience.

Le Noir, The Dark Side of Cirque

Producer, Simon Painter said, “The original concept behind Le Noir was to take the very best of the best cirque performers in the world and rather than create a production in a huge auditorium or arena, produce an intimate style show where the audience is literally inches from the action on stage. Part of the concept is to make the audience experience the show rather than just watch it and a number of sophisticated special effects are employed through the production.”

Led by Creative Producer Simon Painter and Executive Producer Tim Lawson, the creative team behind LE NOIR has launched many large scale productions including Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline, which was to
date the biggest and most ambitious thrill circus ever attempted in the Sydney Opera House. The show sold over 35,000 tickets in 10 days and opened to rave reviews.

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. What is your darker side? Tickets are priced from SGD$35
and are now on sale.
