The Circus is coming to town

Lynchburg is the place to be in November as the Lynchburg Academy Center of the Arts will host a very unusual brand of entertainment for one night only. “Making magic out of thin air” – A circus-style performance titled Air-Play will be in town on November 18 at 7:30 p.m. The center says that during the performance, there will be some spectacular feats like snow will swirl and filling the stage, balloons will swallow people, umbrellas will fly, and fabrics will soar over the audience.

Air-Play performances are said to be "visual poem, using no words, and bring to life the very air we breathe by "transforming ordinary objects into uncommon beauty." These performances have been described as part circus, part sculpture, part theater, and part comedy.

Created with you in mind

This circus was devised through years of experimentation with technology, simple materials, and movement and is the adventure of two siblings who journey through a surreal land of air, The show is said to be a joy from start to finish and to date more than 150,000 individuals have enjoyed the air-antics.
