With our dreams…let’s occupy the sky!

In the brilliant mind of Leonardo da Vinci, everything was connected -- anatomy, mechanics, drawings of interlacing patterns, bird flight studies, and even the face of his Mona Lisa. His mastery of a wide-range of disciplines reminds us of the infinite possibilities of human understanding and that our minds and imaginations are limitless.

“Leonardo wanted to paint the wind. Plasticiens Volants reinvent the master’s fantasies by sculpting the air.”
- Thierry Collin, Plasticiens Volants

In the North American premiere of “Leonardo, Dreams & Nightmares,” Plasticiens Volants returns to Artpark by popular demand to lead us on an all-ages journey into the mind and insatiable curiosity of Leonardo.

Plasticiens Volants is a 46-year-old institution based in Toulouse, France. Their unique street theater performances featuring giant original hand-painted inflatable creations have been seen in more than 23 countries by millions of people. They have performed at countless international festivals, major events such as the Olympic Games in Rio and Sochi and much more. They have also given unforgettable performances at Artpark which hosted their U.S. premieres of “Big Bang” in 2017 and “Pearl” in 2019. Audiences have been eagerly awaiting their return!

Artpark is also hosting a benefit prior to this performance in the Mainstage Theater Terrace. More info can be found here!
