AirOtic, the LGBT-centric cirque show, is set to do a summer residency from June 28-August 24 at the gym at Fishermen Hall. The show combines physique, strength, burlesque, fashion, and music with high-level acrobatics to deliver a powerful message of love, eroticism, and LGBT rights. Unlike other large cirque acts, AirOtic features a small cast of performers allowing the audience to develop a personal connection with each performer.
AirOtic is the brainchild of Stephane Haffner, founder and artistic director of Les Farfadais, the French contemporary circus company that creates shows for venues throughout Europe and aboard cruise ships throughout the world. In 2016, he conceived of an LGBT-centric show to perform aboard Atlantis Events gay cruises, and in 2018 partnered with Matt Farber, the artist manager/producer who founded Viacom’s Logo channel to bring AirOtic to audiences throughout the US. After a successful run in Fort Lauderdale this winter, Haffner and Farber decided to bring the show to Provincetown for the summer.
“As the most popular gay-friendly resort in America, Provincetown is the perfect place for AirOtic to spend the summer,” said Haffner. “It is also an exciting challenge turning a school gymnasium into a world-class cirque venue!”
“I have been coming to Ptown and enjoying the amazing talent there for 25 years” added Farber, “but there has never been a show like AirOtic in Provincetown, or anywhere on the Cape for that matter!”
