About the Show

The Acrobuffos are back! Circus and science collide when these globetrotting clowns return with their sold-out spectacle, Air Play (New Victory 2018). With knowing smiles and suitcases full of surprises, this comedic duo elicits gales of laughter as they transform ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. This delightful, flightful homage to the power of air will take your breath away as the Acrobuffos goad gravity and make really, really, really high art out of the very thing we breathe.

The Acrobuffos goad gravity to make ordinary objects appear extraordinary.
