"A feast for the seLeNoir2nses... the intimate experience is unparalleled "- Sunday Times Perth

‘…has you on the edge of your seat’ Sunday Telegraph

LE NOIR - THE DARK SIDE OF CIRQUE is a mesmerizing experience that focuses on the breathtaking skills with less focus on the underlying theme that links them unlike other Circus shows in the modern market.’ Broadway World

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 best seats in the house are 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.”
