My niece was in town, so I thought I would see what shows were on, and I was intrigued by Le Noir. I have seen quite a number of cirque shows in the US, Asia and in Australia. I think the performers are amazingly talented, incredibly fit and brave, and they are always great productions. But I have to admit, when you have seen a few, you need something new to keep your attention.
Le Noir – “The Dark Side of Cirque” – that was enough to get my attention.
It was a very intimate setting which was great, and along with the usual great performances you come to expect from Cirque, there were a few new ones I hadn’t seen as well.
There was a good mix of humor and audience participation in addition to the stunts.
The grand finale, with the boys performing stunts on the double wheel, much like mice in a cage – drew screams from the audience repeatedly.
They did a fantastic show, which I enjoyed far more than I expected. If you get the chance – I would highly recommend getting along to see it. These guys are incredibly talented.
A show with WOW factor… (and that’s just the performers in their undies.. ha ha).
Le Noir will be at The Lyric Theatre, The Star – Sydney until Easter Sunday.
