AIR TIME: Clowns Christina Gelsone ’96 and her husband, Seth Bloom, met in 2003, while performing for children in Afghanistan. They came to realize they were funnier alongside each other and developed Air Play: a comic, wordless spectacle that employs floating silks, balloons, and umbrellas. “It’s like a circus,” says Gelsone. “No tricks, just gravity.” Developed with the help of kinetic-sculpture artist Daniel Wurtzel, Air Play has been staged 125 times and tours worldwide.
