Gracie Theatre to take “FLIGHT” this fall

FLIGH, a unique aerial theatre piece by Pacific Performance Project/East will fly into the Gracie Theatre for two performances this September. Conceived, designed and directed by Steve Pearson and written by Robyn Hunt, FLIGHT tells the surprising and compelling stories of the first courageous women taking to the sky, against all odds and obstacles.

Part of what makes FLIGHT show so special is the the on-stage assembly of a three-quarter size Bleriot XI monoplane which is then flown and the complex sound and music score, created by NESCom Audio Engineering’s Walter Clissen. Clissen, who  first created the sound design in 2009, will rework the piece including surround sound for the Gracie’s performance.

In addition to the live theatre production of Flight, students studying Audio Engineering, Live Sound Technology, Entertainment Production and more will have the opportunity to attend workshops including Acting with the writer of FLIGHT, Robyn Hart and Sound Design for Live Theatre with Walter Clissen.

FLIGHT will hold two performances while at the Gracie Theatre; a campus-community-only show on Thursday, September 26th at 7PM and a show open to the public on Friday, September 27th at 7PM. For tickets to the public show, visit
