Little Amal, a traveling giant puppet of a 10 year old Syrian refugee girl, explores Queens. At 11 am, Amal joins with the Cetiliztli Nauchcampa and other indigenous dancers to perform in a community garden created by the Mujeres en Movimiento in her honor.

At 4:30 pm, in Corona Park, Amal mistakes a birthday piñata for a donkey about to get a beating. She rushes to its rescue and makes an unexpected friend. Together they explore the pleasures of galloping through a park in a celebration of friendship created by Queens Museum, Materials For The Arts, The Mujeres en Movimiento, Queens Theatre and Shelton Lindsay with Juanita Cardeñas.

At 7:30 pm in Jackson Heights and Amal is feeling fearful. Her beating heart is echoed by a performance by a group of drummers. As the moments pass she finds the courage to keep walking. In partnership with Karesia Batan of Queensboro Dance Festival.
