Lawrence Batley Theatre newsletter

Escape the winter blues with a wonderful evening of circus, drama, comedy and much more at the LBT

Ride the wind and dream with AIR PLAY, a modern spectacle that brings to life the very air we breathe. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant kites floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.

AIR PLAY is a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air, transforming the ordinary into objects of uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky, and an enormous canopy of hovering silk forever alters their future.

'A winning combination of visually stunning sculptures and cheeky but heartfelt storytelling that keeps both adults and children enthralled'

Thu 12 January, 8pm
