Plasticiens Volants, the world-renown French street theatre group, are back with the U.S. premiere of Pearl: Secrets of the Sea. Known for their massive illuminated inflatables, Plasticiens Volants were previously featured in Artpark’s award-winning 2017 season finale spectacle, Big Bang. America’s pre-eminent Pink Floyd tribute, The Machine, will also perform, playing two sets on the Amphitheater stage. 


plasticiens volants presents pearl: secrets of the sea

Giant inflatables fill the sky above, a story of magic and mystery unfolds. 

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

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

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 with their award-winning presentation of Big Bang.









the machine performs pink floyd 

THE MACHINE, America's top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 30-year reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, while creating another legacy all their own.

The New York based band focuses on making every show an authentic Floydian experience for their fans. Known for performing a diverse mix of The Floyd's extensive 16-album repertoire (complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems), The Machine's stellar musicianship, dramatic lighting and video, and their passionate delivery sets them above and beyond the rest.
