Description:
Ride the wind and reach for the skies with a modern spectacle that brings to life the very air we breathe! Created in collaboration with an air sculptor, the nonverbal performance is the result of superbly practiced storytelling and stagecraft as the characters turn ordinary items into objects of uncommon beauty. Umbrellas, over-sized kites, and fabrics dance in currents of air. Confetti turns into the night sky. Balloons have a mind of their own. The normal rules of science, including gravity, are seemingly held at bay as the performers step into a circle of fans and use the updraft to create an astonishing aerial spectacle.
