GRADES K-8

Please note: Latex balloons will be used and may come in contact with the audience

Ride the wind and dream with AIR PLAY, a modern spectacle that brings to life the very air we breathe. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant kites floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.

AIR PLAY is a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air, transforming the ordinary into objects of uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky, and an enormous canopy of hovering silk forever alters their future.

The creation of husband & wife team Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone, AIR PLAY  merges their circus and street theater performance art with the sculptural artistry of Daniel Wurtzel. With visual images seemingly sewn from the sky, this poetic ode to childhood will enchant and electrify the young and young at heart.

Back by popular demand after sell-out performances in 2017.

You Make The Difference

"The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we've ever documented our existence, it's all through an art form."
