Air Play is a visual poem using no words. It lives on the edge of definition: part comedy, part sculpture, part circus, part theater. To audiences around the world the wonder and discovery of Air Play are bold reminders of childhood and growing up.
Circus and science collide in a gorgeous homage to the power of air. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant fabrics floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.
With visual images seemingly sewn from the sky, Air Play’s poetic ode to friendship brings to life the very air we breathe.
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.
Air Play is made for venues seating 500 to 2,500.
"The curtains open and we see a man holding on to a huge piece of light fabric, dancing in the air, moved by a circle of fans. The wonder begins and I suddenly feel like a child again, receptive to every single magical moment in Air Play.”
