Plasticiens Volants on Tour

Pearl: Secret of the Seas by the renowned street theater collectif  Plasticiens Volants, will be on tour in New York State this summer starting on Thursday, August 22,  from 6:30pm-10pm at Artpark, Lewiston, NY, and,  then coming back mid- September for two shows  Friday, September 13 & Saturday, September 14, at 8pm at the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival, Rochester, NY.

With its giant inflatables, Pearl, a story of magic and mystery will unfold and fill the sky above.

It follows a pearl that has escaped its shell and the audience is along for the ride as outdoor space is transformed into an underwater world. Encounters with jellyfish, seahorses and more surprise sea creatures unfold a lively and exhilarating adventure that is appropriate for all ages.

An immersive performance, the show  takes place above, next to, and in front of the audience as the actors manipulate the inflatables through the crowd. Everyone is encouraged to interact and touch the inflatables.

Plasticiens Volants has thrilled audiences in five continents, with high-profile appearances at the Olympic Games in Sochi and Rio, Paralympic Games in Australia, and festivals from Canada to Australia. In 2017, they made their U.S. debut at Artpark and KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival with their award-winning presentation of Big Bang.
