Flight

Award-winning performance innovators ArtSpot Productions and Mondo Bizarro present FLIGHT, an original show that uses performer-activated machines, film projection, song and live theater to explore humankind’s enduring dream of flight and the unpredictable consequences of its pursuit.  The brainchild of sculptor and set designer Jeff Becker, FLIGHT collages characters and ideas inspired by the primal urge to fly, the mythic nature of flight, the modern advances in flight technology, and the human need to “fly away” from natural disasters or political turmoil.  Stunning visuals, live music and dazzling physical performances merge to create a flight fantasia that will invite audiences to consider the ways in which flight has touched their lives, their cities, their countries and the world.
