Three clowns find themselves in a world of balloons, before an audience of both children and children-at-heart. Each wants to tell their own story within the magical landscape. Come to play, come to pop. Balloons can be anything.
This fun and Fringey work of theatre was semi-devised – built up from a script/ inspiration from playwright Brett Steven Abelman.
It is directed by Elena Day,
and features Nora F. Achrati, Rachel Hynes, and Kolleen Kintz as the clowns.
And featuring original music (and sound design) from Sam Cooper and Michael Stettes, of Sam Cooper and the Sleepwalkers.
Would you like to see Balloon Plays?
Balloon Plays is appropriate for all ages – although very young children (under 5) may not be able to sit for long enough, and balloon popping could startle some. (There is only one instance of balloons being intentionally popped during the show, but balloons are unpredictable.) The show is innocent enough for kids, and quirky and magical enough for adults.
The show is 55 minutes long.
The next performance is:
Feburary 21, 2015, 11am in Takoma Park, as part of the We Are Takoma series.
Open admission, $10 donation recommended.
Balloon Plays was originally presented as a part of the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival, a program of the Washington, DC non-profit Capital Fringe.
