Take a flight of fancy in “Air Play” at the New Victory Theater, now through April 15.
Watch in absolute wonder as umbrellas take flight, balloons sprout minds of their own, and shimmering silks ripple to the rafters in this modern circus spectacle.
With knowing smiles and suitcases full of surprises, the globetrotting Acrobuffos, Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone elicit gasps and giggles in equal measure as they animate airflow, goad gravity, and make buoyant, beautiful and really, really, really high art out of the very thing we breathe.
“Air Play” April 1, 7, 8, and 15 at 11 am and 3 pm; April 4 and 5 at 2 pm; April 6 at 2 pm and 7 pm; April 13 at 7 pm; and April 14 at 3 pm (this is a special autism-friendly performance).
Tickets start at $16. April 14 show is $25.
