Voyage De La Vie

This is Singapore's first theatrical circus spectacular, with a cast hailing from all over the world. The brains behind this production include numerous talented show producers and artistic directors from 4 continents. Voyage De La Vie tells the mesmerising story of a boy's coming of age through depth of imagination. Audiences will be treated to performances of great gymnastic ability, magic tricks and illusions, inventive circus acts demanding huge physical ability, all backed up with song and dance. 

The show engages all your senses, be it through visual spectacles or alluring tunes. Audiences can revel in the spontaneous pockets of hilarious acts by the stage performers, particularly the illusionists billed as "Master Magician" and "Piano Genius" Jarett Parker and Raja Rahman. These 2 have performed on the major stages of Las Vegas, New York, Europe and Asia. Two other individuals you should look out for are Jonathan Leong and Viktor Kee, playing the roles of the boy and the lantern keeper respectively. 

Local boy Jonathan is extremely proud to be playing the lead role of the boy. Having taken the path of a singer/songwriter after finishing Singapore Idol in 2006 as runner-up, Jonathan scored this deal and is delighted to be in this first theatre production. To all Singaporeans, if you have the time, do catch the show and show your support for our home-grown musician. 

Viktor Kee has been juggling since the age of six and has won numerous awards as major international circus festivals. He is a veteran of famous theatre productions like Moulin Rouge and the Cirque du Soleil. He continues to push the act of juggling to new artistic levels, particularly evident in Voyage De La Vie, where he synchronises acrobatics, dance and juggling with pulsating music in a sensual ballet that will without a doubt leave audiences purring for more.
