Cirque du Soleil turns noir

Twenty-two former Cirque du Soleil performers join other world class performers in Le Noir, a theatrical production hailed as 'surreal, beautiful, seductive and at times hilariously risqué' by Time Out Singapore.

Simon Painter, the producer, explains, "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 to make this possible."

Incredible feats performed by world-class athletes.


In the tradition of Cirque du Soleil, the feats performed have to be seen to be believed.

Acts include the Colombian Wheel of Death. In a pair of spinning wheels high above the stage, two acrobats perform one of the most complex circus stunts in the world.

The story follows a visual narrative, exploring the full spectrum of emotions from pure white, through to red and finally delving into the inky black of Le Noir.
