Capitol Theater: $28 - $46
60 minutes, no intermission
Overture Center is committed to the safety of our guests, resident organizations, artists, volunteers and staff. On Friday, March 13 our local public health authorities banned any gatherings of 250 or more people due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Because of this, we had to rearrange some of the shows on our schedule, including Air Play.
We have great news to share. Air Play has been rescheduled to MAY 5, 2021.
Ticket holders have been emailed about their options. If you have not received an email, please click here.
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.
There’s more! Special event!
Date and time TBA.
Explore circus, science and movement at a special interactive pre-show event. Stay after the show for a brief, informal Q&A session in the theater with the artists.
