Air Play

By Acrobuffos from New York City

Follow two siblings as they get transported through a magical circus-style adventure where balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky, and the very air you breathe comes to life.

Air Play is a visual poem, using no words. It lives on the edge of definition: part comedy, part sculpture, part circus, part theatre. To audiences around the world the wonder and discovery of Air Play are bold reminders of childhood and growing up.

Written and created by circus performers Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone in collaboration with renowned air sculptor Daniel Wurtzel, Air Play was devised through years of experimentation with simple materials, movement, and technology.

There is nothing quite like seeing this production come alive on stage. Air Play has played around the globe, from the southernmost opera house in the world, Teatro del Lago in Chile, to London’s Royal Festival Hall, to Arts Centre Melbourne, and Shanghai’s Grand Theatre.

No translation needed, Air Play continues to tour all over the world.

“From the minute the curtain goes up on this buoyant fusion of wordless clowning and aerial spectacle, you feel as if you’ve stepped into an enchanted world somewhere between childhood and what comes afterwards, where normal rules (gravity included) have been temporarily held at bay.” The Sydney Morning Herald

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts


Air Play has been made possible with support from: Playhouse Square, New Victory Theatre, Zoellner Arts Center, Flushing Town Hall.
