Flight

FlightNOLA.org

“An intricate piece of live-action sculpture … marvelous mechanical props … ghostly video projections … fabulous costumes … the ethereal score … the quintet of energetic actors. [This] action-packed hourlong amusement won’t let you down.”
— Doug MacCash, The Times-Picayune

“The audience loved it. The house was packed … and the crowd lapped up every moment, even demanding two curtain calls.”
— Dalt Wonk, Gambit Weekly

“The hit of the show, hands down, was the ambitious and eventually awesome ‘Flight,’ conceived and designed by sculptor-set designer Jeff Becker … a genius at imagining and constructing large, astonishing stage settings.”
— David Cuthbert, The Times-Picayune

Local award-winning performance companies ArtSpot Productions and Mondo Bizarro present FLIGHT, the new performance extravaganza featuring performer-activated machines, film projection, song, and live theatre that explores mankind’s enduring dream of flight and the unforeseen consequences of the pursuit of that dream.

The brainchild of award-winning sculptor Jeff Becker, FLIGHT collages characters and ideas inspired by the mythical and historical manifestations of man’s irrespressible urge to fly, and by the all-too-frequent need to flee disasters of our own making. Stunning visuals, live music and dazzling physical performances merge to create a fantasia that will encourage you to consider the ways in which the phenomenon of flight has touched your life, your city, your country and the world.
