The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Acrobuffos performing "Air Play" on Sunday, October 23, 2022.

In Air Play, circus meets science — umbrellas fly, fabrics soar over the audience, balloons swallow people, and snow swirls, filling the stage. With stunning images, Air Play bounces on the edge of definition: part comedy, part sculpture, part circus, part theatre. Great for all ages, Air Play creates beauty and inspires laughter across cultures. A breathtaking homage to the power of air, the production has been seen on five continents by 150,000 people — from the southernmost opera house in the world in Chile, to London’s Royal Festival Hall, Melbourne's State Theatre, and Shanghai’s Grand Theatre — and continues to tour.

A circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air, Air Play transforms ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. The production is borne from two art forms merging: sculpture and visual comedy. For five years, physical comedians Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone collaborated with kinetic sculptor Daniel Wurtzel, creating a genre-bending show currently touring the world.

Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone met at a circus in Afghanistan, became engaged while street performing in Scotland, married in China, and occasionally go home to New York City.

Since 2005, they have created seven shows together, competed in international circus festivals, performed in over 25 countries, headlined at the Big Apple Circus, and were featured on a postage stamp.

Christina is a former ballerina who graduated from Princeton to become a clown; Seth is a former juggler who graduated from three clown schools, including an MFA in physical theater.
