Ticket Information

Air Play

Umbrellas fly, fabrics soar over the audience, giant balloons swallow people, and snow swirls, filling the stage with a spectacle the whole family will enjoy! Without words, the Acrobuffos enrapture audiences with a beautiful visualization of air itself. This physical comedy troupe presents a stunning visual poem that brings to life the very air we breathe. Full of color, light, and laughter, Air Play is “a joy from start to finish,” raves the Sydney Morning Herald. “You feel you’re witnessing divine natural occurrences rather than carefully devised circus stunts,” praises the Hartford Courant. Created by husband and wife circus team of Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone, in collaboration with kinetic sculptor Daniel Wurtzel, Air Play is a whimsical, heartfelt, and funny homage to the magic of the invisible substance all around us: air!

This performance is family friendly.
