Canceled: Air Play


Venue Matthews Theatre


All McCarter performances and events have been canceled through June 30, including this performance. Click here for more information.

Visual, completely wordless, comedic physical theater. The Acrobuffos present sophisticated image-driven performances, playing games using poetic mime. They are not your typical clowns - they are artists and surrealists - who will not be easily categorized.

A joy from start to finish.

About Air Play

In Air Play umbrellas fly, fabrics soar over the audience, balloons swallow people, and snow swirls, filling the stage.  With stunning images and gales of laughter, Air Play bounces on the edge of definition: part comedy, part sculpture, part circus, part theater.  

A circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air, Air Play transforms ordinary objects into uncommon beauty.  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. 

Great for all ages, Air Play creates beauty and inspires laughter across cultures and continents.  No translation necessary, Air Play has played from the southernmost opera house in the world in Chile, to London’s Royal Festival Hall, Melbourne's State Theatre, Shanghai’s Grand Theatre, and continues to tour.

Air Play is a visual poem, using no words, and brings to life the very air we breathe.
