**** (four stars)
"Fun for all ages" is a common puff in the arts, but with Air Play it's strictly true. From the minute the curtain goes up on this buoyant fusion of wordless clowning and aerial spectacle, you feel as if you've stepped into an enchanted world somewhere between childhood and what comes afterwards, where normal rules (gravity included) have been temporarily held at bay.

“AIR PLAY holds the whole audience in the palm of its outstretched hand. A winning combination of visually stunning sculptures and cheeky but heartfelt storytelling that keeps both adults and children enthralled.”
–British Theatre Guide, London, UK.
“You feel you’re witnessing divine natural occurrences rather than carefully devised circus stunts.”
“The curtains open and we see a man holding on to a huge piece of light fabric, dancing in the air, moved by a circle of fans. The wonder begins and I suddenly feel like a child again, receptive to every single magical moment in Air Play.”
- A Younger Theatre (full review)
" Air Play was incredibly fun and inventive, and there was more than one moment in which I really wished I had a camera on me. The production was of course gorgeous, but the image that is burned into my memory is turning around during an audience interaction piece, and seeing two young boys, one white, one black, next to a couple in their 70s, all with giant smiles on their faces. It was magical!"

"Thank you so much for such a beautiful experience. I loved the playfulness, the imagery, the whimsy and the very touching moments of clowning. It must have been such a fun show to create, and it's a joy watching you both on stage clearly having so much fun! I smiled and laughed and squeezed my partners hand as we went on the journey with you. I felt like you both have this incredible childlike insight into the world. "
