Expressed through body and facial masks, pantomime illusions, and dazzling choreography, The Miraculous Magical Balloon tells a story of a traveling actor and his magical trunk, full of toys, tricks, and surprises. Perfect for audiences of all ages!
Our founder, Paata Tsikurishvili, first learned this pantomime show from his master, Igor Romanov, in Georgia 45 years ago years ago and first performed it with Irina in 1996 at the Kennedy Center. It has become a staple of our outreach and educational programming, and this year we’re taking it off the stage and into the great outdoors.
