“A dozen magicians of the air gratify us with the greatest aerial trapeze show one can imagine.” – Le Dauphiné Libéré, France
"Even the popular Cirque du Soleil doesn't stand up to this fearless troupe" – The Washington Times
Famed French trapeze troupe Les Arts Sauts is set to make an exhilarating leap into the Singapore Arts Festival 2005 with their spectacular airborne performance Ola Kala.
Performed by France’s leading inspiration for new trapeze acts, Les Arts Sauts, Ola Kala marks the company’s success at reinventing its performance space around a 12-metre high crosswise trapeze. Executed with precision and poetic elegance, this aerial ballet is
unravelled above audiences reclined on deck chairs, as 16 performers swing, twist and somersault mid-air to the spellbinding live music and vocal performance by five musicians.
Since its establishment in 1993, Les Arts Sauts has charmed audiences in France and abroad, including countries like Greece, Spain, the United States, Paraguay, Morocco, and Australia. Ola Kala is the company’s third creation and will be staged in a white inflatable dome measuring 28-metre high and 50 metre wide.
Singapore will be the company’s last stop in Asia before it returns to Europe.
To catch the performers in action, the media is cordially invited to a rehearsal preview on 30 May 2005, 4pm at the open ground in front of Parkview Square, Bugis.
