Experience Air Play at the Adelaide Festival

Umbrellas fly high, fabrics soar over the audience, balloons swallow people and swirling snow fills the stage; the joy of Air Play is coming to the Adelaide Festival in March.

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.

Acrobuffo’s soaring, swirling, breath-taking ‘kinetic sculpture’ Air Play will be Adelaide Festival’s stunning closer. Air Play is an adventure through a surreal land of air, playing seven shows in the Festival Theatre, with the finale on the last Sunday of the Festival.
