Enchanted Wave Hill Weekend

Saturday, October 21, 10:00 am–3:00 pm
Wave Hill (West 249th Street & Independence Avenue)
FREE


Sit with your wee ones and listen to stories of the “people of the mounds,” the supernatural race of fairies or elves found in Celtic mythology, as told by guest storyteller Marianne McShane and her blue harp. Then travel into Wave Hill’s woodland, and, using only natural materials and a bit of jute twine, create your own tiny, fairy-sized dwelling using found sticks, leaves, moss and bark, or string together a series of autumn leaves to form a fall wand or crown. At 11 am & 12 pm, guest musicians Terry McCann, a guitarist and singer, and Stephen Gara on the uilleann pipes, the flute and the tin whistle, offer a short concert of Irish jigs, reels and songs and to serenade the aos sí in a short autumn fairy parade through the woodland. At 2 pm on Saturday, performers in tropical print body-suits will move through a variety of poses, in response to the site-specific audio narratives emanating from the garments in Containers, A Call & Response Outdoor Performance by Joiri Minaya.

Also on Sunday.
