It's a 5-minute act on stage. But it took years of training and hours of daily gym and acrobatic work. These circus performers also endure injuries and pain to dazzle the audience almost nightly.

Le Noir is the latest circus show to hit our shores. It features 20 of the best contemporary circus performers, many previously from the world reknowned Cirque du Soleil.

We were treated to a sneak preview of their performance, which include acrobatic, balancing, juggling and roller-skating acts at the Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.
