As I stepped into the empty Sands Theatre, I could hear the soft taps and leaps of feet from behind the curtain. I was back in Singapore, back at the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, but this was the first time I was told to take any seat I wished. Joy!
I had been invited for the press preview of Cirque Éloize iD performance, which would officially open just a few hours later with a cast of 15 talented performers freshly landed from Montreal. As members of the media streamed by with their massive tripods, video cameras, mikes and booms, I followed their lead and beelined for a seat front and center - best to learn from the pros.
