Air Play | Adelaide Festival | 15-19 Mar 2023


Umbrellas fly high, fabrics soar over the audience, balloons swallow people and swirling snow fills the stage. Air Play expertly balances comedy, sculpture, circus and theatre in a breathtaking homage to the power of air.

Two siblings embark on an adventure through a surreal land of air in this magical work created by circus performers Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone in collaboration with kinetic sculptor Daniel Wurtzel. With clever use of movement and technology, ordinary objects become uncommonly beautiful.

Seen by 150,000 people over five continents, this brilliant wordless work requires no translation and speaks to audiences of all ages. With stunning images and gales of laughter, Air Play creates beauty and brings joy across cultures and countries.

Air Play is a visual poem that brings to life the very air we breathe.
