The organizers of the popular Cirque Le Noir are telling people in the UAE to prepare to be amazed.

The circus has already sold out around the world and expects to prove an equal success when it presents its displays of balance, contortion, stamina, and aerial artistry to audiences in Dubai and Abu Dhabi this month.

“We are absolutely delighted to bring Cirque Le Noir to the region,” explained Tareq Abuissa, Chief Executive Officer of the show’s promoters in the UAE, Tape Events.

“It is an electrifying show for the whole family that has thrilled audiences all around the world. It is visually spectacular, breathtaking and it will definitely leave you mesmerized,” he added.

Le Noir, the dark side of the cirque, claims to feature more than 20 of the world’s greatest acts, including spinning metal wheels, acrobatic stunts 30 ft. high, and something called the Columbian Wheel of Death - which is performed in a remarkable 360-degree custom-built stage setting.

The Colombian Wheel of Death is said to be one of the world’s most complex circus stunts, with two acrobats performing high-risk feats atop and inside a pair of spinning wheels rotating high above the stage.

“The performers comprise of award-winning athletes. Guided by impeccable spatial awareness, balance and stamina, each performer contributes to the unreal atmosphere as they glide through the air, swinging through a blur of hands and feet. Le Noir has been a sellout show in major cities such as Auckland, Christchurch, Sydney and Singapore,” Abuissa added.
