World renowned designer Mark Fisher leads an international creative team to make Singapore’s own circus theatre production
Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore?s first integrated resort, will once again make history when it launches Voyage de la Vie – a fast-paced, colorful, stunt-a-minute spectacular filled with death-defying circus acts, mindboggling feats of agility, speed and balance, pulsating music, stunning sets and costumes – as the resort?s resident show.
Leading the team of illustrious show design talents from three continents is world acclaimed designer Mark Fisher who has been responsible for the most iconic entertainment show images over the past three decades. Best known for designing the sets for the world tours of Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, U2, Tina Turner and Robbie Williams, he has also designed the opening and closing ceremonies for both the Torino 2006 and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, His stage design credits include „We Will Rock You?, Cirque du Soleil?s gravity-defying Vegas production of “Ka” and also the recently premiered „Elvis?.
Together with co-conceivers, Philip Wm McKinley (Director) and Ray Winkler (Set Design), Fisher has worked to create a show which would not only entertain visitors from all over the world but would be one which Singapore would be proud to call its own.
Mark Fisher, the Creative Producer of Voyage de la Vie said: “We wanted to create a show which would resonate with people in this region. To do this, we were privileged to work with the region?s best creative talents in music composition and choreography and design talents in costume design, sound design and lighting design who had equal input into the show. The creation of the work has been a joyful journey in itself. The show truly brings the best of East and West to tell a simple story that crosses the boundaries of language, generation and culture.”
Voyage de la Vie is literally translated from French to mean “a journey of life”. It is the story of a young man?s rites of passage. A boy, caught up in the modern corporate world and frustrated by the demands of work, seeks to de-stress himself by playing with a computer game in his office cubicle. He is magically sucked into his computer and a fantasy world where he journeys into the dark hidden depths of his imagination to find meaning and fulfillment. Led by the mysterious Lantern Keeper and the mischievous Game Master, he meets unusual characters who not only represent temptation, love, conflict and resolution, and life and death but symbolize the issues of his inner struggles about relationships, dreams, desires, conflict, death and freedom. The experience reaches its stunning climax as the boy breaks through the limits of his imagination to realize that it is the journey that enriches a soul, and not the Destination.
Ms Andrea Teo, Vice President of Entertainment at RWS and Executive Producer, Voyage de la Vie, said: “Voyage de la Vie is Singapore?s most ambitious theatre project to date. We have been working on the show for two years and we are proud to be creating a legacy which we hope will continue for generations to come. Producing an original production on this scale is unprecedented in this market. It?s something we are willing to do because we feel that this is the next step for Singapore?s arts and entertainment industry. We have been privileged to host and receive many wonderful existing international productions and we have great infrastructure in Singapore to receive these travelling shows. This time however, we are creating a production that is original from scratch.
“Our local crew is involved in the day to day work in making this happen and the exposure and experience of working side by side with an international team of known and upcoming talents has benefitted all greatly. This is the home base from which we hope to create a successful show that will also tour later internationally”.
