SPECTACLE of LE NOIR- The Intimate Side of Cirque
From a sold out season in Tokyo, a thrilling cirque style experience is now showing at Marina Bay Sands.
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 and will open to a star studded affair in Singapore for the very first time tonight, 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.
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.

What do we know? The State of America’s Visual IQ
Once upon a time, the role of the teacher in the classroom conjured up images and ideas of blackboards, rulers, chalk, and pencils. But now, technology is becoming more and more integrated into modern school systems—not just as an added bonus, but as a necessity to how students learn and how teachers teach. While at one point in time, adopting technology into the classroom may have been perceived as stressful and forced for teachers and students alike, as it stands now, students aren’t just excited about using technology, teachers are excited and highly capable of utilizing its presence in the classroom. From smartboards to class computers to e-readers and e-textbooks, each new technology presents new modes of both teaching and learning opportunities. Now, every day teachers with tech access are finding new ways to embrace technology and incorporate it into the classroom. As a result, teachers are more efficient than ever, and students are capable of learning faster and more efficiently. In fact, a majority of students say that technology has helped them to achieve their academic goals, while a majority of teachers say they would like to use even more technology in the classroom. The following infographic looks into the tech-teaching phenomenon, and why teachers love it so much.

Oasia is Far East Hospitality’s newest hotel brand. It was launched in August 2011 and is the flagship property for Far East Hospitality in Singapore. It is situated near the Novena MRT, as well as the popular lifestyle shopping malls of Novena Square Velocity and Square 2. Oasia offers the convenience and accessibility that is catered to the requirements and demands of the traveller.
I was invited to the Oasia Hotel recently and am impressed with it. Its external facade did not prepare me for the delightful surprise and warmth that welcomed me as I entered the premises.
Firstly, be prepared to walk in awe as you enter the lobby though, the interior decor which consist of high ceilings, large wooden seating area and a breath-taking stone wall, will only compel you to stay for awhile before checking into your room. The design is so chic and earthy that you feel so calm and relax.
There are four Club Suites, 100 Club rooms, 224 Deluxe rooms and 88 Superior rooms. Oasia Club guests can enjoy exclusive access to the hotel’s 24-hour club lounge, The Living Room. Here, daily breakfast is served alongside complimentary cocktails and canapés from 6-8pm and giest can stay connected to the outside world via the complimentary WIFI service. Oasia Club giests can also swim and unwind in one of the highest hotel pools in Singapore surrounded by greenery and panoramic skyline views on the 22nd floor.
Ok, photo show-off time.
