Air Play



Physical Theatre

Air Play is a comic adventure on an epic scale. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, kites that float over the audience and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder, laugh until it hurts, and be touched by the affection and the rivalry between a sister and brother on a life-changing and surreal journey.

Air Play is an innovative and spectacular new show for audiences of all ages created by Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone, the world famous Acrobuffos comedic duo from New York City.

Air Play plays big and successfully merges the high-flying art of Daniel Wurtzel’s ground-breaking air sculptures with the Acrobuffos crowd-pleasing comedy. The colour palate and themes of the show are inspired by the paintings of Joan Miro and Wassily Kandinsky.

"...the main props of "Air Play" — balloons (including ones so large that the clowns could disappear inside them), long bolts of translucent cloth, ... are so delicate, so fragile, so light as air. You feel you're witnessing divine natural occurrences rather than carefully devised circus stunts." Hartford Courant
