Part comedy, part sculpture, part circus, part theater, Air Play is sure to amaze and delight audiences of all ages. Created by circus performers Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone in collaboration with kinetic sculptor Daniel Wurtzel, Air Play was devised through years of experimentation with simple materials, movement, and technology. Umbrellas fly, fabrics soar over the audience, balloons swallow people, and snow swirls, filling the stage. Described by the New York Times as “making magic out of thin air” and by The Argus as “A brilliant demonstration of the human imagination”, Air Play is an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
