Time Out says

Be entranced by soaring silk scarves and giant bouncing balloons at this family-friendly theatre experience

Lengths of fabric and un-puffed plastic orbes might not be enchanting on their own, but add a little air and they can be transformed into something wondrous. That’s the concept behind Air Play, a kid-friendly circus-meets-theatre show running at the Roslyn Packer Theatre during Sydney Festival

The highly visual one-hour story follows two siblings as they float through a world of fluttering fabrics, falling umbrellas and a sea of balloons. It was conceived by clown and performer couple Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone (who are also the two sole characters) in collaboration with kinetic sculptor Daniel Wurtzel. The show is largely wordless and you can expect some of the colourful props to weave their way through the audience of families with kids over six.
