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.

Did You Know?

  1. The Acrobuffos are New Victory LabWorks alumni! Since developing Air Play as part of LabWorks in 2014, they’ve brought the show to over 75 theaters on 5 continents, and are now returning to the New Victory for the second time.
  2. Seth, a former professional juggler, graduated from three clown schools, and Christina, a former professional ballerina, graduated from Princeton.
  3. Air Play collaborator Daniel Wurtzel is the only professional air sculptor in the world. An air sculptor works to keep lightweight objects suspended midair, by playing with airflow and lightweight materials.
