Our Date Back In Time With Circus 1903

| |
Hi Huneybees,



Last week, hubby and I were transported back to 1903, back to the days of decadence, grandeur, and romance when it was the Golden Age of Circus Acts. Musicals and theatre performances aside, the Mastercard Theatre at Marina Bay Sands was transformed into a circus tent on stage.


CIRCUS 1903 - The Golden Age of Circus features death-defying high-wire acts, contortionists, bicycle wheel of death, knife throwers and much more daredevil entertainment. We were gripping tight to our seats as we watched the circus performers "rehearse" and "prepare" (in Act 1) for the grand circus show (in Act 2).

Act: Russia Cradle

Russian Cradle Performers - Marcella Collares de Queiroz Ribeir & Olavo Rocha Muniz.

The danger level was elevated because all these acts were performed within the tight restraint of the stage. Though there were safety mats, but I wouldn't want to imagine if there were any incidents. But not all acts were that heart bursting. Luckily, the Ringmaster (David Williamson) was there in between the acts for some comedic relief as while as interaction with the audience.




I was especially drawn to the Contortionist - Senayt Asefa Amare from Ethiopia. The way she contorts her body was never seen before, she was so flexible, bending her body in remarkable poses.

I've seen several contorting acts before but Senayt really got me freaked, it's as though her body joints do not exist! You have got to see it, to believe it!



Of course, the highlight of Circus 1903 is that there are no live animals. The African Elephants (Queenie and Peanut), you see in the ads and posters are actually a clever, never-seen-before scaled puppetry that requires 4 puppeteers to "animate" the elephant. 


Created by the model makers who created the National Theatre's War Horse, Queenie and Peanut were brought to life on stage through exquisite movements. They move like real elephants, ear flipping and playing with water, demonstrating a mother and child relationship on stage, bringing us laughs, cheers and a little happy tear...


Both hubby and I truly enjoyed the Circus 1903. It was an extraordinary evening Base Entertainment Asia presented and we went home hoping for more. It is a beautiful piece of performance for audiences of all ages and it will be ending this weekend, be sure to catch it before it goes!
