The Walla Walla Summer Stage Festival includes two performances of Beau & Aero by A Little Bit off presented on the main stage at Gesa Power House Theatre on Saturday, August 7 at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 8 at 11:00 a.m.
Pilot Beau and his sidekick Aero are two bumbling, incompetent aviators. These acrobatic, aeronauts live in a world where balloons are bountiful, laughs are abundant, and hardly a word is spoken. After their crash landing, Beau and Aero continue on an absurd quest for flight. Equal parts hilarious and endearing. Neither Balloons nor parachutes will get this unlikely duo off the ground, but their antics are sure to make your spirits soar.
Beau & Aero combines slapstick comedy with elements of clown, acrobatics, dance, mime, and puppetry into an enchanting and unique style of physical theater. The show feels both classic and fresh, as it pulls on traditions of vaudeville and silent film, as well as modern contemporary influences like James Thierrée.
The show has been touring the continent since 2014 and leaving sold out houses and delighted audiences in its wake. A profoundly fun blend of physical theatre and comedy, Beau & Aero is an extraordinary experience you won’t soon forget.
