The Australian premiere comes direct to Brisbane from a sold out world tour and will, for the first time ever, see the Lyric Theatre transformed to seat audiences around a custom-built stage, offering a spectacular 360 degree view of the performance and bringing the heart pounding action closer than ever before.
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 to make this possible.”
Le Noir though intimate still stays true to the Cirque ideals of creating a jaw dropping spectacle and features incredible displays of balance, contortion, stamina, aerial artistry and death defying acts such as the Colombian Wheel of Death. Cited as one of the most complex circus stunts in the world, this sees two acrobats perform high-risk feats atop and inside a pair of spinning wheels rotating high above the stage.
Le Noir will also feature an act never before seen in Australia! Chilly and Fly are an incredible duo with almost super human spatial awareness that allows them to traverse the boundaries of flight – hand to hand, feet to feet.
The show will be held at the Lyric Theatre from 1 – 17 August. For further information and tickets, go to qpac.com.au or call 136 246.
