Air Play

Thu 3 Aug 2017

This Christmas, enter a world of flying umbrellas, giant kites floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen.

Air Play brings to life the very air we breathe, weaving together breathtaking circus, comedy and dazzling scenic effects for a family show that captures both the wonder and the excitement of the season.

Two siblings set out on an unforgettable adventure in which the ordinary is transformed into the extraordinary, and air, wind and space become agents of astonishment. In epic set-pieces of uncommon beauty, fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, and confetti turns into the night sky. Through it all, laugh-out-loud comedy is never far away.

With visual images seemingly sewn from the sky, this poetic ode to childhood will enchant and electrify both the young and the young-at-heart. So come ride the wind and see your wildest dreams take flight.

We spoke to Christina Gelsone about the bespoke "in the round" staging & world class silent comedy of Air Play on our News & Blog page.
