Air Play by Acrobuffos
Digital Screening March 6-17, 2023
“A joy from start to finish, Air Play will entrance children, and will act as a great reset button for stressed adults.” – Sydney Morning Herald
Umbrellas fly, fabrics soar over the audience, balloons swallow people and snow swirls, filling the stage. A visual poem, using no words, brings to life the very air we breathe. With stunning images and gales of laughter, Air Play bounces on the edge of definition: part comedy, part sculpture, part circus, part theatre, all while transforming ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. Great for all ages!
Company Chaliwaté & Focus
Digital Screening April 17-28, 2023
“superb theatre for our time and a wonderful experience for all audience[s] of all ages, encouraging us to appreciate the world we live in while also contemplating the future.” — InDaily
Somewhere in the near future, a family is about to spend their Sunday together as strong winds and torrential rains rage outside. Meanwhile, three filmmakers journey to the edge of the earth to document a variety of animal extinctions before meeting their own apocalyptic fate. Through an ingenious blend of clowning, puppetry, and plain old theatrical magic, Dimanche paints a witty and tender portrait of humanity surprised by the uncontrollable forces of nature.
